Period Hunting Film Aims for Late 2015 Release Hot off the dizzying success of period naval war blockbuster Roaring Currents, which has netted him Best Actor accolades from the Korean Association of Film Critics and the Grand Bell (Daejong) Film Awards, CHOI Min-sik began shooting his next film last week. Entitled The Great Tiger (literal title), this new work is also a period piece and is being directed by New World’s PARK Hoon-jung. CHOI plays CHUN Man-duk, a hunter who was enlisted to catch the last remaining tiger on the Korean peninsula during the Japanese occupation in the early 20th century. Co-starring with him are JUNG Man-sik (Miracle in Cell No. 7), KIM Sang-ho (Haemoo), LA Mi-ran (Hope) and Japanese actor OSUGI Ren (KITANO Takeshi’s Fireworks, 1997). Director PARK previously worked with CHOI on his hit gangster thriller New World. He also wrote KIM Jee-woon’s I Saw the Devil (2010), another CHOI film, as well as RYOO Seung-wan’s The Unjust (2010).
