Kross Pictures, the international production house, has signed an agreement to produce the official Hindi remake of Korean Blockbuster A Hard Day, to be directed and co-produced by Raj & DK.
A Hard Day debuted at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival in the Director’s Fortnight segment. Thereafter, the film went on to become one of the most acclaimed thrillers in recent times with box office collections of over Rs 150 crores. Directed by Kim Seong-hun, the film is rated as one of the best Korean action thrillers.
Currently, the process of scripting the Hindi screenplay of A Hard Day is on and the makers will soon announce the star cast. The film is expected to begin production in 2018.
Speaking about the film, the director duo, Raj & DK said in a press statement, “A Hard Day is a fast-paced thriller with unrelenting suspense and a great dose of humour. It will be a very interesting challenge to adapt this film into Hindi. We hope to bring a unique spin and contribute to this well-made thriller. We are excited to start our collaboration with Kross Pictures .”
Thomas Kim, CEO Kross Pictures added, “At Kross Pictures our greatest commitment towards our audience is to ensure quality and concept driven content. Since 2015, we are steadily moving towards building a strong footprint in India, which is an important market for us. Post TE3N and Miracle In Cell No. 7 (Hindi remakes under the production banner) – A Hard Day will be an apt film to go with. Raj & DK are known for their unique and quirky style of filmmaking, and in partnering with Raj & DK, we believe we have found the right sensibilities and passion to remake this as a big entertainer for 2018.”
Raj & DK, who have films like Go Goa Gone (2013) and Shor In The City (2010) to their credit, last directed Sidharth Malhotra-Jacqueline Fernandez-starrer A Gentleman.
