Among sales concluded so far at AFM, Festive Films has acquired the film for Singapore and Taiwan, Sundream Motion Pictures for Hong Kong, M-Pictures for Thailand and AOE for Malaysia.
Show East is also in advanced negotiations to sell the film Korean producer Chungeorahm's mainland China distribution outfit.
Directed by Jeon Yun-su, Le Grand Chef stars Kim Gang-woo, Lim Won-hee and Lee Ha-na. The film is receiving a sales boost due to comparisons with food-themed TV drama Jewel In The Palace, which was a massive hit across Asia.
Show East opens the film on 350 screens tomorrow (Nov 1) in Korea, where advance ticket sales suggest it will top the box office this weekend.
