Choi's ASSASSINATION Takes Aim With A New Teaser!
Early 1900s Korea was under Japanese occupation and many Korean resistance activists were based in China, hiding from the Japanese authorities. The year 1933 in Shanghai, a command to covertly assassinate the Japanese Army’s commander is given to AHN Ok-yun, a top-notch sniper sentenced to death. For this task, YEM Sek-jin, an agent of the interim government extricates AHN Ok-yun and her comrades from the prison. But the grand plan is exposed to Japan by an internal spy and a hit man, Hawaii-Pistol is being hired to get rid of AHN. The assassination squad arrives in Korea without knowing hit-man’s chase. Can she make the impossible mission completed?
Gianna Jun To Star In ASSASSINATION
So far, 2014 has tuned out to be another landmark year for Korean action cinema, and Woochi (2009) and The Thieves (2012) writer and director Choi Dong-Hoon is looking to help continue that trend next summer.
Set between China and Korea during the 1930’s, Assassination reunites Choi with actress Gianna Jun whose prior role in the less-than-impressive 2006 live-action adaptation, Blood: The Last Vampire, followed with two big theatrical hits, including The Thieves, and the 2013 flick, The Berlin File. This time, Assassination will have her leading a group of assassins charged by the Korean resistance to target key supporters of the Japanaese occupation.
Joining Jun are her fellow The Thieves co-stars Lee Jung-Jae and Oh Dal-su, along with Kundo (2014) stars Ha Jung-Woo, Cho Jin-woong and Lee Kyoung-young. Choi will produce the film along with partner Ahn Soo-hyun for Caper Films with Showbox financing and distributing the film for its 2015 release.
