Oldboy Director Park Chan-wook to Direct the Sci-Fi Film Genocidal Organ

If you're a fan of director Chan Park-wook, you'll be happy to hear that he has set up another directing gig. The Korean director will develop an adaptation of the 2007 Japanese sci-fi novel Genocidal Organ. The book was written by Project Itoh, and the news comes from The Tracking Board. Here's a brief description of the story:

Set in a time when Sarajevo was obliterated by a homemade nuclear device, the story reflects a world inundated with genocide. An American man by the name of John Paul seems to be responsible for all of this and intelligence agent Clavis Shepherd treks across the wasteland of the world to find him and the eponymous "genocidal organ."

This sounds like the perfect film project for Chan-wook to take on. There are no details surrounding the adaptation, but Sean Daniel and his production company, The Sean Daniel Company, are set to produce it.
