Rob Cohen to Direct Korean War Movie 1950

     July 28, 2011


Rob Cohen has signed with Grapevine Entertainment the South Korea-based CJ E&M Pictures to direct 1950, a film about the Korean War.  Producers Brett Donowho and Paul Hudson developed the story about New York Herald Tribune correspondent Marguerite Higgins, who traveled across the the Korean peninsula with a platoon of Marines, “ending with the mass evacuation on Christmas Eve of nearly 200,000 South Korean civilians escaping the oncoming Chinese and North Korean armies.”  Rachel Long and Brian Pittman will pen the screenplay.  Cohen remarked:

“The Korean War has often been referred to as ‘the forgotten war’ and I think it’s time it was remembered. Telling the story of this harrowing conflict through the eyes of pioneering journalist Marguerite Higgins makes it a very different war film on every level.”

And the director of The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is just the man to make you remember!  Variety notes the $100 million project is the largest in the history of the Korean film industry, which is absolutely something Cohen is qualified to handle.  Shooting will begin next May with eyes to a spring 2013 release; casting talks are underway.  Cohen’s next film is I, Alex Cross starring Tyler Perry.

    I honestly never expected Rob Cohen to look like Koobus from District 9!

      I just paid $22.87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, CoolCent. com

    Great, judging from this guy’s directing history not only will this movie be a mockery of one of the bloodiest wars in American history but a slap in the face to all the Veterans who fought it.

    Sounds like a massive rewrite of history. Maggie was with the Marines for only a few hours at a good bit south of the Reservoir on December 6, and the Marines pulled out for the Bean Patch on December 12, 1950. She was with the Marines for a short period of time post Inchon, but not with a Platoon across Korea in 1950. Never happened.

    Rob Cohen is a very good director and I really he has a good idea and attention to detail. Check out the Chinese scenes in “Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story”.
