Directed by Kim Ji Woon, ‘A Bittersweet Life,’ starring Lee Byung Hun is set to be remade as a Hollywood Movie.
Alan Huges, one of the Hughes Brothers who made films such as ‘From Hell‘ and ‘The Book of Eli,’ is said to be remaking the hit movie according to deadline.com. It is still unknown as to who will play the main roles but a rumor back in 2009 hints that Denzel Washington could possibly play the lead.
“A Bittersweet Life,” starring Lee Byung-hun from “Everybody Has a Little Secret” and Shin Mina from “Madeleine,” portrays the desperate and brutal revenge of Sun-woo (played by Lee) after he is expelled from his gang and comes close to being killed by his boss. Lee Byung-hun is a hitman who falls for the girlfriend of his boss in the stylishly violent “A Bittersweet Life.” Conventional ideas of causation are put into doubt in director Kim Jee-woon’s twist on film noire. “A Bittersweet Life (Talkomhan Insaeng)” is what Korean critics are describing as ‘Action Noire.’ In it, he tweaks the traditional Korean gangster story line, presenting a work with film noire undertones and stylish cinematography.
