Magnet Swipes “Chawz” for North America

Magnet Swipes "Chawz" for North America

Magnolia Pictures has picked up North American rights to Korean director Jeong-won Shin’s “Chawz” for its genre label, Magnet. The company’s Tom Quinn and Peter Van Steemberg negotiated the pact for the film, described as a “monster movie about a giant, vicious pig terrorizing an idyllic countryside,” with Youngjoo Suh and Luna Kim from Finecut.

“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.”
