Showbox has a 'Dream'


SEOUL -- Major South Korean distributor Showbox has picked up international sales rights to Kim Ki-duk's 15th movie "Dream," the Seoul-based company announced Monday.

Kim's film features Japanese star Odagiri Joe ("Sway," "Sad Vacation") and Korean actress Lee Na-young ("Maundy Thursday") as two people caught up in each other's dreams. Each actor will use his own language for the project.

Filming wrapped Jan. 23, and the Korea release is set for spring.

Showbox, which was Korea's No. 2 distributor in 2007, has international rights for "Dream." Spong will distribute the film locally, while investor Stylejam will handle distribution in Japan.

Showbox will be bringing "Dream" to the European Film Market, along with titles including thriller "The Guard Post," erotic comedy "A Tale of Legendary Libido," Ryoo Seung-wan action-comedy "Dachimawa Lee: The Orient Espionage" and war drama "Sunny."
