Korean crime thriller "Time to Hunt," whose debut on Netflix was halted after a court injunction, will be heading back to the streamer after the dispute was resolved.
The film was originally scheduled for theatrical release in Korea, Feb. 26, but this was canceled due to COVID-19 concerns.
The film's distributor Little Big Pictures struck a deal with Netflix, which set the premiere for April 10 in 190 countries. It was to become the first Korean film to go to a third-party streaming service after skipping theaters.
But the film's overseas sales company Contents Panda filed a lawsuit against the distributor, claiming the film's debut on Netflix would invalidate sales contracts it had signed in more than 30 countries.( Collapse )
