THE LAST STAND Director Set To Helm Ed Brubaker And Sean Phillips' CRIMINAL: COWARD
Korean director Kim Jee-woon (who helmed the extremely fun The Last Stand starring Arnold Schwarzenegger earlier this year) is set to adapt the first volume of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips' Criminal series, "Coward". Read on for details!
Variety has revealed that Kim Jee-woon is set to helm the big screen adaptation of Criminal: Coward. As well as The Last Stand, Kim is responsible for acclaimed Korean movies such as I Saw the Devil and A Bittersweet Life. Writer Ed Brubaker has himself adapted the screenplay in story that starts when, "pickpocket Leo - a man who always leaves himself a way out - finds himself in over his head when he's dragged into a dangerous heist, and winds up getting too close to a burnt-out former junkie. Torn between his instinct to run and his emotions, can he stay out of harm's way?" Producer Jamie Patricof (The Place Beyond The Pines) said: "Kim Jee-Woon is exactly the type of filmmaker with which we are looking to collaborate. His previous work consists of elevated genre films, set in interesting worlds, with three-dimensional characters, which makes him a very strong and exciting partner for ‘Coward.’" What do you guys think?
