Indie Trailer Sunday: South Korean Diamond Heist Film 'The Thieves'
Every thief for himself. Today's trailer comes from South Korea, a heist film called The Thieves, basically South Korea's version of Ocean's Eleven, with some fun little modern character twists. This one is set mostly in Macau, another casino city, and involves one big diamond and a gang of 10 thieves, played by the likes of Yun-seok Kim, Hye-soo Kim, Hye-su Kim, Gianna Jun, Jung-jae Lee, Simon Yam, Hae-sook Kim, Dal-soo Oh, Kwok Cheung Tsang and Soo Hyun Kim. This looks kind of fun, and interesting, but not necessarily to the levels of Ocean's Eleven. Nonetheless, it's still worth watching today - take a look!
Watch the official US trailer for Dong-Hoon Choi's The Thieves, in high def from Apple:
It's the score of their lives--if they can pull it off. Five thieves at the top of their game, and the crew is assembling for their biggest job yet. Popie's the muscle & brains, Pepsee's the safecracker. Yenicall climbs walls, Zampano is the strategy man, and Chewingum is the master of disguise. But this new score--it's hot. Maybe too hot. But who can resist the Tear of The Sun: a 318-carat diamond worth $20 million dollars.
The Thieves is written & directed by South Korean filmmaker Dong-Hoon Choi, of The Big Swindle, Tazza: The High Rollers & Woochi previously. Well Go will release The Thieves in limited theaters October 12th.
