Maybe Hollywood has a problem adapting beloved anime and manga properties, but it looks like South Korea won’t. The latest movie from acclaimed director Jee-Woon Kim (A Tale of Two Sisters, I Saw the Devil) is a remake of a classic manga series that has already seen three successful Japanese adaptations.
The title is probably best known as Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade, the classic 1999 anime film that still stands today as one of the seminal sci-fi films of the past few decades. Kim’s adaptation renames it In-rang: The Wolf Brigade, and transplants Mamoru Oshii‘s classic sci-fi story to a near-future reunified Korea. The first international trailer has been released, and though it doesn’t have subtitles, you don’t need to know Korean to know that the film is going to be great.
