Director Chan-wook Park, who helmed the excellent South Korean revenge tale Oldboy, is looking to next tackle a 30s-set crime drama. Variety reports that Park has been set to helm Corsica 72 based on a Black List script by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade (Skyfall, Casino Royale). The film is based on a true story and “follows two best friends who live on the small island of Corsica where they choose different paths in life — one as an honest working man, the other as a gangster — and feud over a woman who comes between them.”
Park recently entered talks to direct another Black List script, the violent Western The Brigands of Rattleborge, but that’s film’s graphic nature necessitates a major star before it can move forward. As such, Corsica 72 is expected to be Park’s next project. He recently made his English-language debut on the horror drama Stoker with Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska, which is set for release next March.
