"Into Fire" sold to four additional countries



Korean film "Into Fire" has been sold to another four countries including the U.K., Germany, Singapore and Russia at a film market in France held concurrently with the Cannes Film Festival which ended over the weekend.

The film had been picked up even ahead of its promotional screening
at the market by Ascot Elite Entertainment Group which distributes to German speaking countries in Europe and Benelux.

According to the film's overseas distributor Fine Cut, the international buyers for the newly signed countries said "Into Fire" is different from previous Korean War movies in terms of its commercial potential and sensitivity which can relay to a global audience.

Fine Cut also added that they are also in the process of fine-tuning the terms of contracts with countries such as Australia, China, Switzerland, Taiwan, and Spain who have also shown strong interest in buying rights for the film.

“Into Fire,” starring actors Cha Seung-won, Kim Seung-woo, Kwon Sang-woo and T.O.P of the idol group Big Bang, is based on a true event during the Korean War where 71 student soldiers fought to protect a support line along the Nakdong River, the country's largest river which flows through the center and south of South Korea.

The film paying tribute to the 60th anniversary of the war is set for release on June 17th.
