Broadmedia Studios (ブロードメディア・スタジオ) will give a February 2011 release in Japan to Korean thriller I Saw The Devil (악마를 보았다), following a deal with sales agent Finecut announced at the American Film Market.

The film was also sold to Germany's Splendid Medien. Finecut scored another German deal, on Cannes title Bedevilled (김복남 살인사건의 전말), with distributor I-On Media.

Japanese distributor Kadokawa Pictures acquired Iris: The Movie (아이리스: 더 무비), a title which Finecut has been promoting since the beginning of the year. Kadokawa (角川) says it will release the film in Jan 2011. It was also sold to I-Cable in Hong Kong and Clover Films for Singapore.

In a related development, Finecut is beginning sales on Athena: The Movie, a second spin-off from the Iris TV series from which the film was developed. It stars Jung Woo-sung (정우성) and Su Ae (수애) and is now filming in locations including Italy, Japan and Hawaii. It is directed by Kim Young-jun (김영준) and produced by Chung Tae-won (정태원).
