OLDBOY’s Chan-Wook Park Set For BRIGANDS OF RATTLEBORGE

Korean director Chan-wook Park is in his talks for his second English-language project, the western The Brigands of Rattleborge. Park, perhaps best known for his Vengeance thematic trilogy which includes Oldboy, has just wrapped his first English-language feature Stoker with Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska.

Written by Craig Zahler, Brigands placed fairly high on the 2006 edition of the Black list, the script had languished in development all this time due to the extremely violent nature of the story.

As the script centers on a sheriff and a doctor who team together to exact revenge on a group of outlaws who had laid waste to a small town during a large thunderstorm, I can certainly see why Park would be interested in the material.
