Korean sales company M-Line Distribution has pre-sold Blades Of Blood to Splendid for Germany and Benelux and to VIP888 for South America.
Directed by Lee Joon-ik (King And The Clown), the film is based on the well-known Korean graphic novel Like The Moon Escaping From The Clouds. It depicts two legendary swordsmen who wanted to change the rotten world but have to confront each other after finding they had actually pursued different dreams.
Cha Seung-won (Eye For An Eye) plays the revolutionist who wants to take the throne with his sword and Hwang Jung-min (Black House) is the blind swordsman who tries to stop his comrade.
The film is scheduled to be released April 29 in Korea.
M-Line also sold the comic action film The Righteous Thief, starring Lee Beom-soo and Kim Su-ro, to Eagle for Taiwan.
M-Line also handles Le Grand Chef 2: Kimchi Battle, starring Jin Goo (Mother) and Kim Jung-eun (Forever The Moment) as chefs battling in a national competition to find the authentic taste of Kimchi.
Also, the company represents the Vancouver Dragons and Tigers Award winner Eighteen by Jang Kun-jae and Jung Sung-il’s Venice entry Cafe Noir at HKIFF.
