Another Public Enemy: According to The Hollywood Reporter, South Korean entertainment major Cinema Service confirmed Monday at the American Film Market that a sequel to the acclaimed Public Enemy, from Korean director Kang Woo-suk, is in the works and will be ready for a wide February release.
Another Public Enemy brings back the original cast, headed by Sol Kyung-gu, and takes the original film's story about a poor policeman hitting back at a rich, corrupt public figure a step further by changing the policeman's role to public prosecutor.
"Enemy" screenwriter Kim Hee-jae also returns for the project. The original 2002 film had about 3 million admissions and received much critical acclaim. Kang's follow-up was "Silmido," which grossed more than $70 million in South Korea this year, making it the territory's second-highest-grossing film to date.
