Magnolia Pictures’ genre division Magnet Releasing has picked up a Korean animal-amok flick, and apparently given it a slight title change.
Variety reports that the company grabbed North American rights to CHAW, which will be known for that release as CHAWZ. Directed by Shin Jeong-won, CHAWZ is a mix of horror and satiric comedy about a huge, rampaging boar that terrorizes a small village, prompting assorted odd characters to set out to hunt it down. Magnolia (which previously released THE HOST, another Korean monster film with touches of humor, in the U.S.) has yet to announce a release for CHAWZ, or whether it will receive theatrical play or go straight to DVD/Blu-ray.
