Magnet Releasing acquires ‘Chawz’

Magnet Releasing, genre arm of Magnolia Pictures announced
on 14th September that it has acquired North American rights to Chawz, a wild and
funny Korean monster movie about a giant, vicious pig terrorizing an
idyllic countryside. Directed by Jeong-won Shin, Chawz is an
affectionate tribute to classic monster movies that boasts
fantastically gory special effects of the porcine beast attacking
innocent tourists looking to pick organic vegetables.

“If Jaws was looking to branch out to dry land, without a doubt he’d
want to be Chawz,”
said Magnet SVP Tom Quinn. “Another worthy addition
to the Korean monster hall of fame and the Magnet Releasing library.”

Youngjoo Suh, CEO of Finecut comments, “I’m delighted to work again with
Magnolia who did a brilliant job for the distribution of The Host. We
very much look forward to our collaboration through Chawz.”

The North American deal was negotiated by Magnet’s Quinn and Peter Van
Steemberg
with Youngjoo Suh and Luna Kim from Finecut.
