Ryoo Seung-ryong stars as killer in "Point Blank"

Source | 2013/05/08 



'Dirty sexy' Ryoo Seung-ryong is a killer.

Ryoo is negotiating terms and conditions with the movie "Point Blank". "Point Blank" is a well known French movie about a killer and a nurse who helped out the killer joining powers to track down the man who kidnapped the nurse's wife.

The remake will be directed by Juhn Jai-hong. The movie will be modified the Korean way and make the nurse a doctor instead.

Ryoo will take on the role as the killer which would completely contrast the image he had in "Miracle in Cell No.7".

Ryoo Seung-ryong is the current hottest actor who has been busy with the movies "Arrow, The Ultimate Weapon", "Everything about my Wife", "Masquerade", "Miracle in Cell No.7" and more. Now he's in the middle of making "Battlefield - Whirlwind Sea" before he joins "Point Blank".

Lee Jin-wook lines up action-thriller film

by javabeans | August 2, 2013 


Coming off a great run as the hero in cable drama Nine, Lee Jin-wook is adding a film to his upcoming schedule and is in final negotiations to join Point Blank, the remake of the French thriller that earlier cast Ryu Seung-ryong. Can the screen take that much scruffy rugged hotness at once? Get ready to find out.

Lee Jin-wook and Ryu Seung-ryong will form an unlikely alliance in the film, where Ryu is a killer who’s being hunted by cops and hitmen alike. Lee Jin-wook is a doctor who helps Ryu (he was a nurse in the original), and when the doc’s wife is kidnapped the two men join forces to rescue her.

I love Ryu Seung-ryong in anything he does, and Lee Jin-wook has really come into his own post-army service and seems to be picking interesting projects. (His earlier career was a lot more uneven, and I remember thinking he had a raw charm that could swing either way—great if he learned to channel it, but potentially stuck in mediocrity if not. Thankfully, I think he’s out of the clear on that one, or at least heading that way.) A taut action-thriller seems like a good fit for both actors, and I love the idea of their unexpected partnership. Bring it on.

The Point Blank remake (which is NOT the Point Break remake, I have to keep telling myself—and boy, wouldn’t that be a whole different crazy kettle of fish) will begin filming later this month.

There Will Also Be A Korean Remake of POINT BLANK

Last year, you heard info that Working Title Films and producers Mark Wahlberg with Stephen Levinson will develop the American version of French action/thriller, POINT BLANK by writer/director Fred Cavaye.

While we’re still waiting for that one to arrive, the Korean version is going to get itself started. Variety said CJ Entertainment will develop the Korean remake of POINT BLANK which will retain the U.S. title and it will star actor Ryu Seung-ryong as the kidnapper, Cho Yeo-jeong as the mother-to-be and Lee Jin-wook as her male nurse, to be directed by Juhn Jai-hong

Here’s the synopsis of the original film..

Everything is going well for Samuel (Gilles Lellouche; Tell Know One/ Sherlock Holmes/ Mesrine/ Little White Lies) and Nadia (Elana Anaya; The Skin I Live In/ Sex and Lucia/ Van Helsing/ Talk to Her/ Mesrine), his beautiful wife. He is studying to become a registered nurse and she is expecting their first child. But everything changes when Nadia is kidnapped right in front of Samuel, who is knocked out cold, trying to stop the kidnapper. When he comes to, his phone is ringing; he has just three hours to get Startet (Roschdy Zem; Just Like a Woman/ The Cold Light of Day), a man who is under police surveillance, out of the hospital. Samuel’s destiny, now lays in the hands of Startet, a man who is not only wanted by the police! If Samuel
wants to see his wife again, he has to act fast.

배우 류승룡 주연으로 상반기 개봉을 앞둔 영화 ‘표적’(가제, 제작 바른손&용필름, 배급 CJ엔터테인먼트)이 3개월 간의 촬영을 마치고 지난 16일 크랭크업했다.

류승룡, 이진욱, 김성령, 조여정, 조은지, 진구 그리고 유준상 등 화려한 캐스팅으로 화제를 모으고 있는 ‘표적’은 16일 54회차 촬영을 끝으로 크랭크업했다.

‘표적’은 의도치 않은 살인 사건에 휘말린 남자 여훈(류승룡)과 누군가에게 납치된 아내를 구하기 위해 여훈을 돕게 된 레지던트 태준(이진욱)이 위험한 동행을 시작하게 되는 스토리를 담은 작품이다.

류승룡과 이진욱은 ‘표적’에서 새로운 캐릭터에 도전한다. ‘내 아내의 모든 것’, ‘광해, 왕이 된 남자’, ‘7번방의 선물’ 등 매 작품마다 새로운 캐릭터를 탄생시킨 류승룡은 이번 작품에서 냉철함과 인간미를 동시에 지닌 캐릭터로 연기변신에 도전한다.

드라마 ‘로맨스가 필요해’, ‘나인’ 등을 통해 인지도를 높인 이진욱은 납치된 아내를 구하기 위해 여훈과 동행하는 레지던트 태준 역으로 감정 연기와 액션 연기를 완벽하게 소화했다.

이런 상황 속에서 ‘표적’은 류승룡, 이진욱의 강렬한 연기 변신을 엿볼 수 있는 카체이싱 장면을 22일 공개했다. 공개된 스틸은 두 배우의 긴박하고 긴장감 넘치는 상황을 고스란히 전해 영화에 대한 호기심을 자극한다. 촬영 내내 완벽한 팀워크를 자랑한 이들의 명품 연기가 어떤 명장면을 만들어낼지 벌써부터 기대를 모은다.

‘표적’은 ‘고사: 피의 중간고사’로 감각적인 연출력을 선보인 창감독이 연출을 맡았으며, 강렬하고 개성 넘치는 캐릭터들과 탄탄한 스토리, 그리고 대한민국 대표 배우들의 만남으로 관객들의 기대를 더하고 있다. 최두선 기자(sun@)
