It seems like Park Chan-Wook is getting on very well with Hollywood. The Korean filmmaker was one of the most impressive breakouts of world cinema in the 2000s, thanks to "Joint Security Area" and his "Vengeance Trilogy," made up of "Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance," the currently-being-remade "Oldboy" and "Lady Vengeance." But he's spent the last year or so making his English-language debut with Southern gothic tale "Stoker," starring Mia Wasikowska, Nicole Kidman and Matthew Goode, while also co-writing sci-fi "Snow Piercer" with compatriot Bong Joon-Ho, who's just directed the film with an international cast including Chris Evans, Octavia Spencer and Tilda Swinton.
