A television series adaptation of the 2007 Korean film SOO (otherwise known as Act of Revenge) may be headed for FX.
Deadline reports that the network is working on the project with Barry Josephson (Life as We Know It, Bones) in place as an executive producer. The script is being penned by A History of Violence scribe Josh Olson, who is also on board as an executive producer, along with Ted Kim and Jiwon Park from Soo‘s Korean distributor CJ Entertainment.
Based on Shin Young-Woo’s graphic novel “Double Casting,” Soo centers on a hitman who witness the murder of his policeman twin brother. He then decides to assume his brother’s life in order to track down those responsible and exact revenge.
