‘The Berlin File’ sequel currently in the works
The orginal, directed by Ryoo Seung-wan and starring top actors Ha Jung-woo, Han Suk-kyu, Jun Ji-hyun and the director’s younger brother Ryoo Seung-bum, drew over 7 million to theaters.
Kang Hye-jeong, head of Filmmaker R&K, said, “Although it wasn’t easy planning a sequel due to high expectations, I believe we have come up with a direction of the story everyone can be pleased with. However, as the movie is of the relationship between North and South Korea, we are approaching the script very carefully.”
The movie will be directed once again by Ryoo Seung-wan. The director helmed the upcoming “The Battleship Island,” and is expected to start filming “Berlin 2” in early 2018.
Kang said, “As soon as the script is complete, we will contact actor Ha Jung-woo to make a film that is in continuum with the previous title.
