Netflix Licenses South Korean Jin-Roh Remake Inrang

Sounds like we may be able to get our peepers on the South Korean Jin-Roh remake before too long.

Netflix has announced they’ve licensed the streaming rights to the film, which is called Inrang.

The film opens in South Korea next week.

The original Jin-Roh anime film, set in Mamoru Oshii’s sprawling Kerberos universe, was directed by Hiroyuki Okiura at Production I.G, and released in 2000.

While the original is set in an alternate universe Japan in which the Axis won World War II, Inrang is set in 2029, in which North and South Korea are set to reunite. The special police unit in the film is created to stop a terrorist group who oppose the reunification.

The film stars Choi Min-ho, a popular South Korean entertainer, and is directed by Kim Jee-woon (The Good, The Bad, The Weird).

Here’s looking forward to Netflix and Inranging.
