“The Villainess” is set to become an American TV series, marking a first for a South Korean movie. 

Contents Panda, which is the overseas sales company of the film’s distributor, Next Entertainment World, said Tuesday that it clinched a partnership deal on producing the series with U.S. entertainment company, Skybound Entertainment. 

Directed by Jung Byung-gil and starring Kim Ok-bin, the action film depicts the checkered life of Sook-hee who has been trained as a killer since her childhood. The movie premiered at the 70th Cannes Film Festival’s midnight screening in 2017 and got positive reviews.
