Hyun Bin’s film Late Autumn heads to Toronto

Late Autumn is the Korean classic whose upcoming remake stars Hyun Bin and Tang Wei, which wrapped filming in Seattle earlier this year. Now it’s been officially invited to the 35th Toronto International Film Festival, which opens next month.

The story depicts a short but intense love affair between a woman, a prisoner on leave, and a man who is running from something. This will be the first official outing for the film — which isn’t even completed yet. According to Boram Entertainment, the producers of the film, work is still in the post-production stage.

Late Autumn falls into the Contemporary World Cinema category at the film festival. Previous Korean films that have been invited to Toronto include Kim Ki-duk’s Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… and Spring, Lee Jun-ik’s The King and the Clown, Lee Chang-dong’s Secret Sunshine, and Im Sang-soo’s A Good Lawyer’s Wife.

Late Autumn is directed by Kim Tae-yong of 2006′s Family Ties. It doesn’t yet have a release date, although the production company is aiming for the end of the year.
