Chan-wook Park, best known for his Korean classic Oldboy and the more recent Stoker, is set to take on his next project with the body theft thriller Second Born for David Lancaster's Rumble Films.

David Jagernauth wrote the original screenplay for Second Born. The story takes place in a futuristic world where neural microchip implants are able to store one's own consciousness. This leads to black market body-swapping.

David Lancaster launched Rumble Films in July shortly after producing the buzz worthy indies Nightcrawler with Jake Gyllenhaal and Whiplash starring Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons.

Stephanie Wilcox and Wonjo Jeong will produce. Derby Street is financing the project with their CEO, Nicola Horlick, executive producing alongside James Gibb and Jon Shiffman.
