Korean director Kim Ji-woon (A Bittersweet Life, Tale of Two Sisters) has already started filming The Good, The Bad and the Weird. The movie is obviously Sergio Leone-inspired and the Korean cast is just superb.
Good - Kang-ho Song (Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, The Host)
Bad - Byung-hun Lee (JSA, A Bittersweet Life)
Weird - Woo-sung Jung (Musa The Warrior, Daisy, Sad Movie)
^^ Kang-ho Song is one of the most popular Korean actors and having The Host become such a huge cult only helped his reputation. After watching Memories of Murder I was awestruck…literally. I am bewildered this project actually exist. Having these three actors appear in the same film - a pseudo Spaghetti Western - blows my mind. Be sure to check out all the films I listed in this post. Especially Dasiy and Memories of Murder.
People, especially Taratino fanboys are excited about Miike’s upcoming Django film but personally this is the western I think will please fans overall. I mean come on… A Bittersweet Life has references to multiple spaghetti westerns (i.e. Django Kill, TGBAU) so that has me convinced the director is at least aware of the genre.
