Marc Forster Eyes Up 'Die Bad'

After making the spectacular "Quantum of Solace" (Be sure to go see it), Variety has word that Marc Forster is now in negotiations with Universal to remake the Korean film "Die Bad."

Brad Ingelsby will write the script. The film will be produced by Forster and his Apparatus partner Brad Simpson, Vertigo's Roy Lee and Doug Davison and Rick Schwartz of Overnight Productions.

Written and directed by Seung-wan Ryoo, the 2000 original consisted of four short films that told the story of the rise and fall of a gangster. The components are being combined for the English-language remake that will be set in New York.
