Fresh Footage From Kim Jee-woon's Korean Western THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE WEIRD
It's over schedule and so badly over budget that it's had to move to a larger production company to get the funds needed for completion but Kim Jee-woon's upcoming Korean western remains very high on our list of anticipated titles around here. Why? As a director Kim - at the controls of A Bittersweet Life, A Tale of Two Sisters and The Foul King - seems simply incapable of making a bad film and when you give someone with his immense visual talents a stellar cast that includes Song Kang-Ho, Lee Byung-Hun and Jung Woo-Sung and it seems like pure gold. Plus, it's a full on period western. Made by Koreans.
The first footage from the film arrived online a while back thanks to a Korean news broadcast and now a more extensive reel of footage has arrived online via the same means. Yeah. Very, very cool. You'll find the new clips embedded in the Twitch Player below the break.
