Raj & DK to remake Korean drama 'A Hard Day'

Korean thriller "A Hard Day" is getting a Hindi remake, to be directed and co-produced by "Go Goa Gone" directors RAj & DK.

Kross Pictures has signed an agreement to produce the official Hindi remake of the film after their critically acclaimed "TE3N". The Hindi remake of "Miracle In Cell No 7", to be directed by Umesh Shukla, is already in the works.

"A Hard Day" made its debut at 2014 Cannes Film Festival in the Director's Fortnight segment.

The movie was critically appreciated at the festival and became one of the biggest hits at the box office in South Korea.

"'A Hard Day' is a fast-paced thriller with unrelenting suspense and a great dose of humour. It will be a very interesting challenge to adapt this film into Hindi. We hope to bring a unique spin and contribute to this well-made thriller. We are excited to start our collaboration with Kross Pictures," the director duo said in a statement.

Thomas Kim, CEO Kross Pictures said the movie was their latest attempt towards "building a strong footprint in India".

"Post 'TE3N' and 'Miracle In Cell No. 7' 'A Hard Day' will be an apt film to go with. Raj & DK are known for their unique and quirky style of filmmaking, and in partnering with Raj & DK, we believe we have found the right sensibilities and passion to remake this as a big entertainer for 2018."

The company is also planning to come up with the Indian remake of Korean hits such as "Tunnel" and "Miss Granny" in future.
