New Zealand & South Korea Team for Soul Mate

Han Chae-young joins cast of Soul MateDoes anyone out there remember a little New Zealand horror film called The Ugly? It was one of those low-key flicks that came around direct to DVD here in the States just over a decade ago and got a good amount of buzz for its time.

Well, if you have fond memories of it, The Ugly’s director, Scott Reynolds, is getting ready to make his first film since 2001, which also happens to be the first in a new South Korea/New Zealand co-production treaty.

THR reports that Reynolds is on board to direct Soul Mate, a horror film about love and vengeful ghosts, which sounds about as South Korean as one could ask for. The script comes from Nick Ward, whose recent credits include another solid flick from New Zealand, “>The Ferryman (review), and Weta Workshop will be handling the visual effects on Soul Mate.

So far Korean actress Han Chae-young (pictured) is the only casting that’s taken place, but there will be more very soon since Soul Mate is scheduled to shoot in January.
