That plot sounds fishy

Despite D-Wars getting bashed by the film critics left and right, comedian turned director Shim Hyung-rae is not discouraged and already has plans to bring more of his... baffling ideas to the big screen.

One has been tentatively titled The Last Godfather where Shim plans to resurrect the legendary Marlon Brando with CGI to play mafia head honcho Don Corleone from The Godfather in his new slapstick film. Can he do that? I imagine Brando filing a lawsuit from beyond the grave.

The other film will be an underwater science fiction movie entitled Fish-War (could this be the sequel to D-War?). I dunno, I keep imagining shoals of sardines in military formation. Hut hut hut!

I haven't watched anything he has made but Shim's movies sure sound absurd. There's a likelihood they'll become cult hits in time. All I'm thinking is... aiyo, what is this lah!

D-War will open in 1,500 U.S. cinemas this Friday in some 60 cities across the country.

It opens "across the country" meaning in America right?

Have you seen D-War (Dragon-war)? It is in English or Korean?? That's what i am curious about.

Yea, across America.

I haven't seen D-War, but as it stars and all American cast, I guess it's in English.

Ah! Typo...'an' all American...
