The Wailing director Na Hong Jin will come back with a global project by partnering with Thai filmmaker Banjong Pisanthanakun.
The title of the new movie is Rangjong (working title). ‘Rangjong’ means psychic in Thai. Na Hong Jin participated in the original scenario as well as planning and production, and Banjong Pisanthanakun, who is considered to have opened a new horizon for Thai horror films with the 2004 film Shutter, will be in charge of the directing.
Rangjong has drawn keen attention since the beginning of its production. The Jokers Films, which distributed Parasite and The Handmaiden, decided to distribute the film.
“I have no doubt that Rangjong, led by Na Hong Jin, will be a fascinating and scary movie,” said Manuel Chiche, CEO of The Jokers Films. “Ban Zong is one of the most interesting directors in Thailand. I’m sure he will be able to present a thrilling movie.”
Meanwhile, Rangjong will start filming in the second half of this year and be released worldwide in 2021.
