Dimension Films' remake of The Man From Nowhere hires scribe Shawn Christensen

Revenge-thriller THE MAN FROM NOWHERE was South Korea's highest grossing film in 2010, and it will be undergoing the remake process from the Weinstein boys' Dimension Films. Today comes the news that they have just hired a hot scribe to pen it.

Shawn Chrsitensen, who wrote last year's ABDUCTION, will handle the task of adapting THE MAN FROM NOWHERE for the English-language. No director has signed on yet.

The film, in short, focuses on a quiet pawnshop keeper with a violent past who takes on a drug- and organ-trafficking ring to save the child who is his only friend. Read on for the full plot of the original:

An ex-special agent Tae-sik Cha's only connection to the rest of the world is a little girl, So-mi, who lives nearby. Her mother, Hyo-jeong smuggles drugs from a drug trafficking organization and entrusts Tae-sik with the product, without letting him know. The traffickers find out about her smuggling and kidnap both Hyo-jeong and So-mi. The gang promises to release them if Tae-sik makes a delivery for them, however it is actually a larger plot to eliminate a rival drug ring leader. When Hyo-jeong's disemboweled body is discovered, Tae-sik realizes that So-mi's life may also be in danger. Tae-sik becomes enraged at the prospect that So-mi may already be dead and prepares for a battle, putting his own life at risk.
