2003 Korean Film “Save The Green Planet!” To Get Hollywood Remake Led By Original Director
Fans of the 2003 movie “Save the Green Planet!” might be interested to hear the movie is getting remade in Hollywood!
CJ ENM announced on May 9 that “Save the Green Planet” will be remade in the United States. Director Jang Joon Hwan, who directed the original film, will be in charge of directing, while CJ Vice Chairman Lee Mi Kyung will be in charge of the overall producing. Ari Aster, director of film “Hereditary” and “Midsommar,” will produce the remake, and the script will be adapted by writer Will Tracy, who wrote the HBO drama “Succession.”
Lee Mi Kyung said, “What I learned from the success of ‘Parasite’ was that audiences around the world communicated with and were entertained by works that were not limited to genres within a large theme. Jang Joon Hwan is a director who can express that, and I am very happy about the decision to remake this movie.”
“Save the Green Planet!” is about a man named Lee Byeong Gu (Shin Ha Kyun) who believes aliens exist. He is convinced that Kang Man Shik (Baek Yoon Shik), the head of a chemical production company, is their leader, so he kidnaps the CEO in order to force him to stop the planned destruction of the planet before it is too late.
