Directed by Kang Hyoung-chul, “Sunny” was one of the highest-grossing movies in Korea when it was released in 2011. It secured 7.36 million admissions, for a gross of $47.7 million.
The remake reunites two of the biggest names in Indonesian filmmaking, producer and screenwriter Mira Lesmana and director Riri Riza. They have worked together on several previous films, including “The Rainbow Troops.”
The remake is produced through Lesmana’s Miles Film. It will relocate the action to Jakarta, but otherwise hew closely to the original film’s non-linear storytelling. Its local title is “Bebas,” which translates as “Free” in English.
The cast is headed by Baim Wong and Marsha Timothy. Other cast members include Agatha Priscilla,
