Kim Jee-woon, the South Korean director of genre fare who captured the world’s attention with films like The Good, the Bad, the Weird and I Saw the Devil, and then went on to make a fun and probably underappreciated English-language debut that starred Arnold Schwarzenegger earlier this year called The Last Stand, has his next crime story lined up, and not only is it a great one, it’s one that already has a cult audience of devoted fans. Variety is reporting that he’s been hired to direct an adaptation of the first story arc in comic book writer Ed Brubaker’s crime story compilation “Criminal,” which goes by the title Coward. Brubaker is one of the best and most respected writers in comic books today. Not only have ‘Coward’ and other stories that have appeared in his “Criminal” title won prestigious awards, but he’s also the same guy who wrote the storyline being adapted in the upcoming Captain America sequel, The Winter Soldier. So, if you’re a movie producer, he’s basically the dude whose stories you want to be turning into movies at the moment. Here he’s not just getting a creator credit, but is also adapting his story for the screen himself.
