French distributor TF1 and German buyer MFA will bring the movie starring Lee Jung-jae of “The Thieves” (2012) and Choi Min-sik of “Old Boy” (2003) to the European Continent.
“?‘New World’ keeps showing new things and never lets [the audience] get bored,” said President Christian Meinke of MFA, according to Finecut. “The movie has a very [unique] story line and highlights talented actors.”
TF1 has previously distributed “The Man from Nowhere,” released in France in 2010.
MFA distributed two 2009 films by director Bong Joon-ho, “Thirst” and “Mother,” and 2012 movie “Pieta” by director Kim Ki-duk to German-speaking countries.
“New World,” which was released here last month, attracted more than 3.5 million moviegoers to theaters as of Tuesday.
