‘Die Bad’ to be Remade in English
The suddenly in demand Brad Ingelsby is scripting Die Bad, the English-language remake of a Korean action film with Marc Foster (Quantum of Solace) negotiating with Universal to direct.
The 2000 original production was written and directed by Seung-wan Ryoo and, according to Variety, was comprised of “four short films that told the story of the rise and fall of a gangster.” The remake will turn this into a single seamless tale set in New York.
Ingelsby has quickly become the Go To screenwriter after selling his spec script, The Low Dweller, to Relativity Media and gained attention as director Ridley Scott and star Leonardo DiCaprio decided to work on the film. Since selling the script in March, he has been hired to write Buried for Paramount and adapt WildStorm’s Sleeper for Warner Bros.
