Finecut Adds ‘Night Flight’, Sells ‘Sea Fog’

Leading Asian sales agent Finecut has picked up international rights to “Night Flight,” the gay-themed drama that premieres this week in Berlin’s Panorama section.

The company also arrives at the European Film market having recently scored significant pre-sales on its upcoming slate of pictures produced by celebrated directors Bong Joon Ho and Kim Ki-duk.

Directed by LeeSong He-il, “Night Flight” pitches a young gay man drifting around Seoul and on the way discovers a society creaking under cutthroat competition for college exams, a lack of human rights education and discrimination against minorities.

LeeSong was last year in Panorama with another gay drama “White Night” and before that in Berlin with “No Regret.”

Finecut pre-sold upcoming thriller “Sea Fog” (aka “Haemoo”) to Japan’s Twin Company and to France’s Wild Side Films. The $10 million film is the directorial debut of Shim Sung-bo and is executive produced by Bong Joon H, director of “The Host” and last year’s hit “Snowpiercer.” It stars Park Yu-chun, a member of the popular K-pop group JYJ, and the acclaimed Korean actor Kim Yoon-seok (“The Chaser”.) The film is currently in post-production with scheduled completion in May. It will be released in late summer in Korea through Next Entertainment World and in early 2015 in Japan by Twin.

Japan’s The Klockworx and Malaysia’s Hwa Yea Multimedia pre-bought Finecut’s action thriller “Rough Play” which is directed by Shin Yeon-shick and written and produced by Kim Ki-duk.

Finecut also sold another Kim Ki-duk-produced film “Red Family” to Japan’s Gaga Corporation. The film previously screened in Japan and was the audience prize-winner at last year’s Tokyo International Film Festival.

The company’s EFM slate also includes “Han Gong-Ju,” the drama that last week shared the top prize at the Rotterdam Film Festival, and “Manshin,” the fantasy documentary by Park Chan-kyong (brother of Park Chan-wook and director of iPhone film “Night Fishing”.)ENDS
