Korea-based Sidus FNH will launch sales for the Pusan International Film Festival’s omnibus Busan Project (working title) at next month’s European Film Market in Berlin.
It has also been revealed that Sol Kyung-gu, Kang Dong-won and Song Hye-kyo (pictured) will star in the project, which was revealed at the festival last October. Festival chief Kim Dong-ho is executive producing.
Thailand’s Wisit Sasanatieng, Japan’s Isao Yukisada and Korea’s Jang Joon-hwan will each direct a short about people falling in love in Busan.
Sasanatieng’s Iron Pussy will follow a 1970s transvestite spy and will star Kim Min Jun and Michael Shaowanasai; while Yukisada’s fantasy melodrama Kamome will star Sol and YoshitakaYuriko. Jang’s Love For Sale will feature Kang and Song as a couple in a society where love is industrialized.
Jang starts shooting on January 15, with all production to be completed by the end of February.
The Busan Project is aiming for a premiere at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
