New Line to remake Korean hit The Man From Nowhere

The Man from Nowhere remake New Line

I have good news and bad news. The remake of the 2010 Korean film THE MAN FROM NOWHERE, directed by Lee Jeong-beom, is back in the cards. Take that how you will. But the good news is that the rights, which defaulted from Dimension Films, have been picked up by New Line Entertainment. Which means that the script will no longer be written by ABDUCTION scribe Shawn Christensen, who was originally attached. Which means that it's even less likely that Taylor Lautner will star.

There are currently no directors or writers attached, but they could maybe go to somebody cool, right? Am I right to put any amount of faith in a movie studio?

In the original 2010 film:

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.

The film starred Bin Won, Sae-ron Kim, and Tae-hoon Kim. More details as this story breaks!
