Hollywood to remake "Gonjiam: Haunted Asylum"

Hit found-footage horror film "Gonjiam: Haunted Asylum" will be remade in Hollywood.

Los Angeles-based production company Black Box Management and Korean agency BH Entertainment have inked a partnership for the movie's remake, according to the Hollywood Reporter, Thursday.

"As 'Parasite' has proven, the appetite for Korean content has never been higher," Charles Pak, the entertainment group's international development head, said.

"The partnership will further the exchange and development of Korean and U.S. adaptations, remakes and originals for both Korean and U.S. markets."

The 2018 horror film, directed by Jung Bum-shik, revolves around seven online community members who meet to explore haunted places.

They visit an abandoned psychiatric hospital in Gonjiam County ― one of CNN's seven freakiest places in the world ― where they stream paranormal activities involving the place.

The 2.4 billion won ($1.94 million) budget movie became an unexpected hit, grossing $21 million at the worldwide box office.

The Korean movie trailer is under the cut, just in case some people don't like scary stuff (it's not really bad tho).
