Kim Haneul courted to be Jung Woo-sung’s co-star
It’s still unconfirmed and “in negotiation stages,” but Kim Haneul is being courted to play opposite Jung Woo-sung in his new movie Forget Me Not (or just plain Don’t Forget Me), which sounds like a Memento-esque psychological drama about the slow unraveling of a man who suddenly has amnesia, and has to figure out why. That’s pretty up there on my list of horrifying situations I never want to be in, mostly because I saw Memento.
The movie will be written and directed by Lee Yoon-jung, who did a 25-minute version of the basic premise as a short film starring Kim Jung-tae (Goddess of Marriage) for the Mise-en-scène Short Film Festival. Jung Woo-sung has signed on as both producer and star for the feature length version, and Kim Haneul is reportedly considering it favorably, though there are rumors she’s considering a drama as well.
In the short, a man calls the police to report his own disappearance. He finds himself alone in an apartment and has no memory of who he is or why he’s there, and no clues to point him toward an identity. When he steps out, he runs across a woman who seems to know him, but when he tries to get closer, she disappears. Obviously the feature film will have to have more plot, but it sounds like a mystery/psychological thriller, and the pairing should be a good one if it goes through.
Forget Me Not plans to start shooting early in the new year.
