SEOUL: A Korean zombie flick will open in 19 countries on four continents, beginning late October, Yonhap news agency quoted the movie’s overseas sales company as saying Monday.

“Rampant” will get theatrical release in Taiwan, the Philippines, Germany, Britain, Vietnam, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, the United States and Canada within two weeks after its premiere in South Korea, says Contents Panda, which is in charge of the film’s overseas sales.

The film, starring Hyunbin of “Confidential Assignment” (2016) and veteran actor Jang Dong-gun depicts a Joseon prince and swordsman’s struggle to save his people from nocturnal ghosts.

It is directed by Kim Sung-hoon of “Confidential Assignment”.

“It’s not uncommon for Korean movies to open in 19 countries on four continents during the same period. It’s an achievement comparable to that of ‘Train to Busan’,” a Contents Panda official said.

“The flick is going to smash (box-office records of) theatres of each country in the Halloween season.”
