AMERICAN ZOMBIE Documentary filmmaker, Grace Lee, is now shooting a feature called AMERICAN ZOMBIE, about a living dead community in LA. It sounds like it's going to be a mockumentary, but the most interesting thing about it is that it's entirely produced by a Korean company, iHQ. This company is planning to produce a whole raft of English-language pictures, the same way Columbia Tristar has an arm that produces Chinese-language movies.

"Thanks to the Korean wave, Korean films are able to expand their market further within Asia. It's now high time to go beyond that market," says president Teddy Jung.

iHQ also produced DAISY, the hitman romance movie from INFERNAL AFFAIRS director, Andrew Lau, with an all-Korean cast.

Thanks you linking to my site (again!)
Speaking of Daisy, the brand new official Daisy website (which is still under construction b.t.w.) can be found by browsing to www.daisy2006.com/main.html
Flash player 8 is required.

I´m afraid I have to correct you on saying that Daisy has an all Korean cast, Hong Kong actors Simon Yam and David Chiang are also in this flick.

The movie has an very international flavour, A korean, Dutch, Hong Kong crew, a Japanese music composer. Shot in the Netherlands. Edited and printed in Thailand.

Sorry, I should have clarified and mentioned that the leads are Korean: Jyeon Ji-Hyun (MY SASSY GIRL) and Jung Woo-Sun.

Thanks for the correction.

I'm actually looking forward to this.
Even tho the premise might be a bit cheesy, I'm hoping that it will do well enough to get other asian film co's interested in making English movies.
