Choi Dong-hoon’s South Korean heist thriller was a summer smash in its home country where it reportedly generated more than 10m admissions – the first film to do so since tsunami action film Haeundae three years ago.

Well Go USA plans an Oct 12 North American release for the story of five bank robbers who prepare to steal a diamond from a Macau casino.

Kim Yun-seok, Kim Hye-soo, Gianna Jun, Simon Yam, Lee Jung-jae and Kim Su-hyun star.

Well Go USA president Doris Pfardrescher brokered the deal with Showbox / Mediaplex head of international business Judy Ahn.
