On March 9th Deadline revealed that there’s a possibility that the most successful 2010 movie “The Man from Nowhere” or “Ajeossi” (아저씨) will be remade on Hollywood version.
Deadline also mention that Shawn Christensen (script writer from Abduction) who will be in-charge on this project under Dimension Films. He will adapt the original script for American. On same day, CJ Entertainment who hold the license confirmed that they sold the licensing to Dimension, but they haven’t decided to be involved this remake as co-producer or not, there will be more further information from US.
And i’m curious about who will fill in the Won Bin’s role? It would be hard decision for Dimension. Because i think Won Bin is irreplaceable for this movie. through “The Man From Nowhere” he made a very big hit. Won Bin gained more popularity on 2010 (until now), his role as Tae Sik-ajeossi was a phenomenon. On this thriller movie that full of actions and blood, i warn you, in this movie Won Bin was too hot. So, may i have exclusive request??? please keeps Won Bin for Hollywood version!!! i’m begging here…
