Bond director Marc Forster in for "Die Bad"
NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - With his James Bond movie "Quantum of Solace" set to blow the doors off the worldwide box office, director Marc Forster has signed on for a new project.
The German-Swiss filmmaker, who previously shot specialized fare like "Stranger than Fiction" and "Finding Neverland," has been attached to "Die Bad," a remake of a Korean action movie.
The original film, released in 2000, centers on a set of interlocking stories featuring a gangster and gang violence in South Korea. The Universal Pictures remake will be set in the United States.
"Solace," which has already broken U.K. box office records ahead of its November 14 bow in North America, has been acknowledged by many critics as perhaps the most action-heavy James Bond movie in the long-running franchise.
