Just below we now have what appears to be a first look at Kwak Kyung-taek (Dark Figure Of Crime, RV: Resurrected Victims) and Kim Tae-hun’s new Korean war epic, Battle Of Jangsari – that’s the current working title from Warner Bros. Pictures Korea and Taewon Entertainment. Finecut is currently at Cannes and repping international sales rights on the project which stars SHINee member Choi Min-ho (Illang: The Wolf Brigade), Kim Sung-cheol (Prison Playbook – TV) and Megan Fox (Transformers, Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen).
Based on a true story of Jangsari Landing Operation during the Korean War in the 50’s, the film is about 772 student soldiers – whose average age was 17 and had only received 2-weeks of boot camp training — that were drafted for Korean War in order to pave the way for Incheon Landing Operation, which turned the tide of war.
Minor updates can be seen floating around online but we’ll wait for something official on this end in terms a title, acquisitions and possibly some footage. In the meantime check out the pic below.
