Korean film tentatively titled "George and Bong-sik" has been presold to China ahead of premiering in Korea, according to its production company Mega Pictures on Monday.

Mega Pictures revealed in a press release that China's media giant Guangdong Century Limited acquired distribution rights for the film on July 12 after watching footage of what has been shot so far, as well as in consideration of its cast and scenario.
"We bought the distribution rights to the film because of the all-star cast and how comic action genres are popular in China," an official from Mega Pictures explained.

Mega Pictures added that the company has received several inquiries from Japan and Thailand as well.

"George and Bong-sik" is about how a LAPD cop George (played by Jung Jun-ho) and Korean cop Bong-sik (played by Shin Hyun-jun) deal with chaotic situations. "George" also co-stars Korean actress Seo Young-hee and Australian-born super model Jessica Gomes.
The local release date for the action comedy has yet to be set.
