Deliver Us From Evil spinoff series will begin filming in 2023

According to the local production company of the original film, Hive Media Corp., a spinoff series of the suspenseful Korean thriller “Deliver Us From Evil” will begin filming in 2023.

The new TV show “Ray,” which is being developed for a streaming service, will be made in conjunction with Artist Studio, a production business best known for producing films including actor Lee Jung-breakthrough Jae’s feature film debut as a director, “Hunt,” and the Netflix series “The Silent Sea.”

But In-nam unintentionally gets involved in a case in Thailand. Ray (Lee), popularly known as “the butcher,” is a shadowy assassin who hunts In-nam down in Bangkok in order to get revenge. In-nam is being pursued by Ray (Lee), commonly known as “the butcher,” around Bangkok as he seeks retribution for the murder of his brother.

The new TV show will mostly focus on Ray, telling the tale of how he became a careless killer and detailing his battles with numerous new bad guys from around the globe.

According to Hive Media Corp Lee may reprise his role as Ray in the upcoming series in addition to serving as its producer and director.

The original movie’s director, Hong Won-chan, will also work on the project as one of the founders.

According to the production company, the project will also include commercial director Shin Woo-Seok and author Kim Bo-tong of the popular webtoon “D.P.”

Shin’s creative studio rose to fame with witty Canon commercials released on YouTube in which celebrity chef Choi Hyun-Seok and former soccer player Ahn Jung-hwan are killed by a bear while trying to take photos of it.

Also, Hong Kyung-Pyo, the director of photography for director Bong Joon-ho’s Oscar-winner “Parasite,” will be filming the new series.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic situation, “Deliver Us From Evil” sold over 4.35 million tickets here in 2020.
