Writing is Hard

The guy who wrote that classic for the ages, GLADIATOR, has taken it to the next level. Desiring to make a movie about the US/Mexican border, but finding it difficult to come up with an idea, he has bought the remake rights to Park Chan-Wook's near-classic JSA, a movie about the border between North and South Korea.

This is the first deal where an individual has bought the remake rights to a Korean movie by approaching the company directly. Think about how this would be like a writer buying the rights to THE LONGEST DAY because he wants to make a movie about the invasion of Iraq. Smile to yourself as you imagine the Korean production executives laughing all the way to the bank.
