Filming for ‘Running Man’ begins with U.S. studio support
The movie drew a lot of attention after the Korean operation of 20th Century Fox decided to invest in the film, marking the first time a Hollywood film distributer has made a financial commitment of this sort to a Korean production.
“The Korean movie centers on an ordinary main character, unlike Hollywood movies, but still provides diverse action scenes and unexpected plot twists,” a staff member from 20th Century Fox told media outlets.
The movie distributer said earlier this year that it intends to invest in, produce and distribute five Korean movies, each costing up to 5 billion won ($4.4 million).
“Running Man” centers on a runaway who was unexpectedly involved in a murder case. Shin Ha-kyun and Lee Min-ho have been cast for the movie.
