(D-War) Dragon Wars Sequel Aimed for 2009 Release

11 Comments

It did such stellar business in its native South Korea, and is doing modest enough business in the U.S., that Variety reports director Shim Hyung-Rae’s dragons destroy city movie “D-War”, aka “Dragon Wars” is getting a sequel aimed for a 2009 release. The original was based on aKorean legend about unknown creatures that return and devastate the planet. Namely, Los Angeles, which as we all know, needs urban renovation badly.

Here’s more from Korean website KBS:

During a news conference at the Korean Cultural Center in New York, comedian-turned-film director Shim Hyung-rae said he has received a proposal to shoot a sequel very soon, targeting a summer 2009 release date.

Shim said that he is discussing a possible release for D-War in Europe and that preparations will begin Thursday for its opening in Japan.

The sci-fi blockbuster about a legendary Korean serpent earned six-point-six million dollars in the U.S. in its second week of release as of last Friday.

I haven’t seen the movie, so I don’t know if the stars of the film survives (I’m guessing, Yeah), but there’s no word if Jason Behr or Amanda Brooks will return. I’m guessing they’re going the prequel route, but then again, I could be wrong. But I’m probably not.

    This film is what would happen if you gave the produces of the Mighty Morphing Power Rangers access to the national defense budget. And lots of liquor.

    Horrible compared to what? That (D-war) was by far one of the best CGI films…EVER.

    Name some movies with better CGI than D-War….

    Didn't think so.
