A spinoff series of the hit movie Deliver Us from Evil will be produced as a global OTT series.
Hive Media Corp, the production company of Deliver Us from Evil, and Artist Studio, the producer of Hunt, confirmed, “Recently, we decided to jointly produce the global project with Lee Jung Jae featuring the character Ray under the title Ray (working title).”
Ray is a Japanese-Korean killer who pursues In Nam (Hwang Jung Min) for revenge in Deliver Us from Evil. The series tells the story of Ray, from the birth of the most brutal but attractive killer Ray to his confrontations with the many villains that become his targets. These villains will later form the “villain universe” and will be produced into new series.
Lee Jung Jae will not only reprise the role of Ray but also take part in the production, possibly as one of the producers. D.P. writer Kim Bo Tong, Dolphiners Films’ Shin Woo Seok, and Deliver Us from Evil helmer Hong Won Chan have joined the project as creators, and Snowpiercer and Parasite cinematographer Hong Kyung Pyo has also joined the crew.
The pre-production will officially begin in 2023.
