In an age of common air travel, telecommunications, and the World Wide Web, North Korea may be the only country that remains truly isolated from the rest of the globe. While it is possible to visit, it’s notoriously difficult to explore the land. Foreigners are carefully monitored by translators, guides, and guards. But thanks to a deal with New Regency and Gore Verbinski, we may soon be getting a inside look at the secretive nation.
The studio has just acquired the rights to Pyongyang, Guy Delisle‘s graphic novel based on his experiences in the DPRK capital. Verbinski is set to direct, as well as produce through his Blind Wink banner. The script comes from Steve Conrad (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty), and is said to be dakly comedic in tone. More details after the jump.
