Chan-wook Park to remake Le Couperet (The Ax)

Variety reports that Mr. Vengeance, Korean director Chan-wook Park will remake the dark French comedy thriller Le Couperet (The Ax). Costa-Gavras, director of the 2005 original said he’s glad that Park wants to remake his film and that he will support him as much as possible. Le Couperet tells the story of a chemist (played by José Garcia in the original version) who gets fired after a merging operation of his company. After several years of unemployment, the loss of his middle-class standards for his family and his self-esteem, he decides to improve his chances on the job market by killing of his competitors. Sounds like perfect material for somebody like Chan-wook Park, don’t you think?
