The Yellow Sea? The Chaser? Office? Hopefully one of these among writer and director Hong Won-chan’s filmography has gotten your attention in the past decade or so, and if you know your trivia, you know Indonesian action star Iko Uwais is a fan of the man’s work.
This, of course, brings us to CJ Entertainment’s newest prospective thriller, Deliver Us From Evil, which has Hwang Jung-min (Veteran, A Violent Prosecutor) and Lee Jung-jae (Svaha: The Sixth Finger, Along With The Gods franchise), leading the tale of a man about to sacrifice everything to survive a contract killing.
The film also stars Time To Hunt and Tazza: One Eyed Jack actor Park Jung-min, and Anarchist From Colony actress Choi Hee-seo. There’s no exact date, but the trailer sells, and I’m excited to catch this one in full after its July release.
