Park's Vampire funding

UPDATE: Don't ever let it be said that I don't care about you guys. I read the strike-backs to my articles. And as such present you with the following: umm THIS. I believe it's all there, or it was a short while ago anyway. Happy trails!

Park Chan-Wook (OLDBOY) has been working on a vampire film and it was announced today that he will receive funding from both Focus Features and Universal. The film is called THIRST and sees a failed medical experiment turn a priest into a vampire. As his life falls apart, he struggles to maintain his sanity.

Well, this is sweet since Park Chan-Wook is the freaking man. It's not often I get to report on something I'm legitimately happy about - usually I fake it. Vince Vaughn in another romantic comedy about Christmas? Am I thrilled? Erm how about hell yeah?? That guy is the funniest. That time he said that thing about something but he dragged it on and on way longer than was comfortable and then said 'good talk' at the end? Priceless.
Extra Tidbit: Check out Park's least lauded film - I'M A CYBORG BUT THAT'S OKAY. It's a gem.

his vengeance trilogy is all kinds of awesome (I'm a big fan of "sympathy for mr. vengeance", especially) so I'm sure he can direct the hell out of a vampire movie. the plot sounds like an interesting take on the genre too.

good, good, this sounds it

watched i'm a cyborg the other week, it was pretty decent by another director's standards, but it kind of drags on a bit.

I Would Catch "I'm NOT A CYBORG BUT THAT"S OKAY" if it was Available

...on Region 1. Seriously, I can't find a legit copy anywhere. I remember hearing it was SUPPOSED to be released last month on DVD, but nothing, nada. I can't order it online from anywhere unless I want to result to a crappy quality bootleg. I'm seriously pissed about this. I've been waiting for that flick for a long time and I still haven't been able to see it.

As far as "Thirst" goes, sounds awesome. Hopefully it'll get a REGION 1 RELEASE this time!

Awesome awesome awesome. Just watched Oldboy (for like the 'elevetieth' time) so this news makes me want to spray paint the words "Bea Arthur Rulz!" on my neighbors house. I don't know what that has to do this with news...just thought I'd say that.
