'Blue Caprice' Director Tapped for Remake of Korean Drama 'Failan'
Alexandre Moors, who made his feature directorial debut with 2013's Blue Caprice, has been tapped to helm the remake of Korean film Failan.
Written by Jose Rivera (The Motorcycle Diaries, Letters to Juliet), the film tells the story of a young Russian woman who flees to America, but finds herself caught in a human trafficking operation. She arrives in New York through an arranged marriage with a gangster, but dies before ever meeting him. He gets to know her and her tragic story through the letters she wrote him.
Landscape Entertainment’s Bob Cooper and Tyler Mitchell will produce with Beacon Pictures’ Armyan Bernstein and Suzann Ellis.
The 2001 South Korean film Failan was written and directed by Song Hae-sung, and adapted from the Japanese novel Love Letter by Jiro Asada.
Moors' previous film, Blue Caprice, was nominated for best first feature at the Indie Spirit Awards, and he was nominated for breakthrough director at the Gotham Awards. He's repped by by Caliber Media and CAA.
