Hwang Jeong-min and Yoon Jong-bin's "Duke", CJ steps out

Hwang Jeong-min and Yoon Jong-bin's "Duke", CJ steps out

One of the most anticipated movies of 2017 is at risk.

Several sources claimed that the movie was just about to crank in when this happened.

"Duke"requires more than 13 billion won in production costs and CJ Entertainment was responsible for investment and distribution but it suddenly called it quits due to internal matters.

4 billion won has already been used in the process of pre-production and that is more than what they thought would be needed in the beginning. CJ must have thought the same, resulting in a break.

"Duke"is based on the true story about the secret encounter between North and South Korea involving a special project.

The cast includes only the best in Chungmuro:Hwang Jeong-min,Jo Jin-woongandJoo Ji-hoon, while the movie is directed byYoon Jong-bin.

This major blockbuster movie is now on a cliff. With only a couple months left before crank-in, it now doesn't have an investor. Officials are talking to Lotte Entertainment and Showbox but no good news so far.
