Korean Thriller ‘Time To Hunt’ Heading To Netflix After Court Injunction Lifts
Time To Hunt, the Korean crime thriller that was recently barred from making its debut on Netflix after a last-minute court injunction, will now be heading onto the streamer after the dispute was resolved.
The movie was originally set to premiere on April 10. However, just before the film’s online bow, international sales rep Contents Panda filed an injunction against the production company, claiming it still had a valid contract and had already inked 30+ territory deals on the title. After a Seoul court granted the motion, the Netflix release was delayed.
Now, Little Big Pictures has backed down, releasing a statement today apologizing for the move and saying “a smooth agreement with minimal cost” had been reached. Contents Panda also put out a statement saying it had negotiated compensation with distributors who had pre-bought the film and that the VOD release could now go ahead.
Netflix did not release a statement but did confirm that the film was cleared to launch on its platform, on an as-yet-unspecified new date.
