South Korea's Fine Cut has clinched a trio of pre-sales on Shin Jung-won's $7m creature feature Chaw, including the sale of all German-speaking rights to Ascot Elite.

The film, about a man-eating boar terrorising a Korean village, has also gone to J-bics for Thailand and IOF Entertainment for India.

Hans Uhlig, whose credits include the Star Wars series, The Day After Tomorrow and The Perfect Storm is over-seeing the special effects on the film, which is currently in post-production after shooting in the US and Korea, including the creation of the boar.

The film's ensemble cast is headed by Eum Tae-woong (Forever The Moment) and Jung Yu-mi (Family Ties).

Shin's credits include To Catch A Virgin Ghost, which racked up two million admissions in Korea and had critics comparing him to Tim Burton.

Fine Cut has also closed more sales on The Chaser, to Spain's Versus Entertainment, and Eye For An Eye to Turkey's Horizon and India's IOF.
