Ma Dong Seok To Act In Hollywood Remake Of “The Gangster, The Cop, The Devil”
It has been confirmed that “The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil” starring Ma Dong Seok will be remade in the United States.
The movie is based on a gang boss in Cheonan who becomes the target of a serial killer. He survives and becomes the only person to have survived an attack by him. A detective, who hates organized crime members, works with the gangster to catch the serial killer.
The creative group “Team Gorilla,” led by production company BA Entertainment and Ma Dong Seok, said it has finally agreed with Balboa Pictures, led by Sylvester Stallone, to produce a remake of “The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil.”
Braden Aftergood, the chief producer of Balboa Pictures, shared the reason why he decided to do a remake. He said, “The concept itself of catching a serial killer in collaboration with a gang boss is attractive to audiences all over the world.”
Ma Dong Seok will again play the role in the remake of the gang boss who was attacked by a serial killer. His U.S. agency B&C GROUP stated, “There is great significance for Korean filmmakers to directly participate in the remakes of American films with agreements that were not in the existing Korean movie remake contracts.”
“The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil” was sold to 104 foreign countries, including the United States, Canada, Germany and France, and was also officially invited to the midnight screening section of the 72nd Cannes Film Festival. It will be released in Korea on May 15.
