Park Chan-wook Rounds Up Brigands

Having won acclaim for the likes of Oldboy, Sympathy For Mr Vengeance and Three… Extremes, director Park Chan-wook has recently made his English-language debut with Stoker. With work on the vampire tale complete, he has selected The Brigands Of Rattleborge as a possible follow-up.

S. Craig Zahler’s Western hit the Black List way back in 2006, and had been cooling its heels in development thanks to its violent content. Park’s interest means it’ll likely start moving forward again.

The plot follows a group of bandits who use a torrential thunderstorm as the ideal cover to rob a small town. What they don’t count on is a local doctor deciding to take revenge on the thieves. Nobody's plan goes smoothly and much blood is spilt. Frankly, it sounds exactly like the sort of material Park could really pull off, though according to Variety it’ll need to lock in a big name or two to get it made and sold.

Stoker, which features Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska, Dermot Mulroney and Matthew Goode, is set to arrive on March 1 next year.

Great news, but trailer for Stoker is well overdue...
Being a huge Park Chan-wook fan this to me will always be good news. One of the most talented directors to come along in the last decade. Though I've been waiting on Stoker for AGES. The project was completed months ago. Where is the trailer? I really hope the lack of promotion for Stoker doesn't mean it's a total turkey. More

The Brigands of Rattleborge sounds like a movie Sly Stallone almost did called Gale Force in the early 90s about a man defending his town against thieves during a hurricane. More
