Director Park Chan Wook to Direct Korean Movie “Lady”

Famed director Park Chan Wook will be directing a movie in his home country.

According to industry insiders, Park Chan Wook has decided on “Lady” as his next project, and has begun preparations for production.

“Lady” is based on “Fingersmith,” a British crime novel written by Sarah Waters. According to insiders, Park Chan Wook is currently finalizing and making final edits to the script for the film.

Park Chan Wook’s latest film was the 2013 film “Stoker” starring Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska, and Matthew Goode. This movie was the director’s English-language debut. His last Korean movie was “Thirst,” released in 2009.

“Lady” is expected to go into filming in early 2015.
