As long as Sonnenfeld doesn't go for sentimentality or a sense of overwhelming cool (End of MIBII, Wild Wild West, Get Shorty), his movies work pretty well....

Ok, honestly, Addams Family and Addams Family Values were the best (although that ensemble moviewith Tim Allen was good...yes, I said "Tim Allen" and "Good" in the same sentence)

Barry Sonnenfeld courts 'Scandal'
Director to remake Korean box office hit
Source: Variety

SEOUL -- Barry Sonnenfeld has been attached to direct and produce an English-language remake of Korean box office hit "Scandal Makers."

Pic centers on a philandering pop singer whose life is turned upside-down when he discovers that he has a daughter and a grandson.

"I was immediately attracted to 'Scandal Makers' because of its universal themes," Sonnenfeld said. "It is funny, intelligent and full of heart."

Sonnenfeld is looking to partner with a major studio and producer to develop and release the project.

June Lee, former head of Chan-wook Park's production company, Moho Film, is also attached as a producer. M-Line Distribution reps the film's remake rights and international sales.

The original "Scandal Makers" marked the directorial debut of Kang Hyung-chul. Since bowing in December, pic has topped the 2008 box office chart in South Korea with 8.2 million admissions to date, bringing in $36 million locally.

Sonnenfeld is repped by WMA, which is also negotiating U.S. rights to the film. The film was presented in Korea by Sovik Venture Capital, DCG Plus, Lotte Entertainment, and produced by Toilet Pictures, DCG Plus, and M-Line Distribution.
