Hollywood remaking South Korean "A Bittersweet Life"

Oscar winning actor Denzel Washington will star in a remake of South Korean film "A Bittersweet Life" directed by Kim Ji-woon.

This project has been in development at Fox and tells the story of a highly cultural and ruthlessly violent society as it illustrates the ethical codes in the Korean mob and how they clash with personal morality.

The title character is an enforcer for underworld boss who is
given a task that he fails to execute. Double-crossed and faced with certain death, he regroups and sets up a plan to exact his revenge.

It will be interesting to see the transformation of South Korean culture into Hollywood style movie. With Denzel Washington as the lead man you can expect no less than an Oscar performance than the original actor Lee Byung-hun.

South Korean actor Lee Byung-hun plays a bad-ass ninja Storm Shadow in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra currently showing in cinemas.
