The Korean remake of the popular Hindi film series ‘Drishyam’ is in the works. It’ll produced by Kumar Mangat Pathak’s Panorama Studios in collaboration with South Korea’s Anthology Studios, which was co-founded by former Warner Bros. executive Jay Choi, ‘Cobweb’ (2023) director Kim Jee-woon and ‘Parasite’ (2020) star Song Kang-ho.
The remake will be produced jointly by the two leading companies, marking the first time collaboration between an Indian and a Korean studio. It is also the first time a Hindi film is being going to remade in Korean. All three films of the franchise, including the upcoming third installment, will be remade by Anthology. Work will begin on the first part in the beginning of next year.
Panorama Studios produced the Hindi versions of ‘Drishyam’ (2015) and its sequel ‘Drishyam 2’ (2022), both of which starred Ajay Devgn and were successful at the box office in India. The production house has planned a third installment in the Hindi version of the franchise and has also purchased remake rights to all three films for all regions outside of India. It is also heard that remakes of the franchise are apparently in the works in Japan and the US.
