Park Chan-Wook

So, the guy who directed "Oldboy" and "Thirst" tackling a western? Um, yes please. Just tell us when it's ready and we're there.

Variety reports that Park Chan-wook is in talks to direct "The Brigands Of Rattleborge," and it sounds promising as hell. Penned by S. Craig Zahler ("The Incident"), the script made the 2006 Black List but has apparently stalled in development due to the kind of graphic violence that requires a big star to sign on to get financing to come together. Well, Red Granite Pictures ("Friends With Kids," "The Wolf Of Wall Street") is helping out in that department and are teaming up with Mythology Entertainment to make it happen. So what is it all about?

The premise is awesomely simple, centering on a group of bandits who use a torrential thunderstorm as cover to rob a small town, and the sheriff and doctor who seek out revenge against them. (Note to poential cast: you will get wet.) 

No word yet on when this will roll, and after all, we're still (im)patiently awaiting Park's English-language debut "Stoker," which doesn't arrive until next spring (boo-urns). But it seems the director's Hollywood experience has been good so far (sorry, Jose Padilha). But just one thing guys....that title? No one is going to see a movie with the words "brigands" or "rattleborge" in it.
