Josie Ho Joins OPEN GRAVE As Copley Week Continues
Well, when you’re hot, you’re hot. Shartlo Copley week continues with news that the actor’s other new project (aside from playing the villain in Spike Lee’s Oldboy remake) Open Grave, has a new cast member. Her name is Josie Ho.
If you haven’t heard of Ms Ho, don’t fret too much, just go check out director Ho-Cheung Pang’s 2010 film Dream Home in which she stars. You won’t regret it.
Dream Home sees Ho play Cheng Li-Sheung, a young professional woman out to secure her dream riverside apartment in Hong Kong. Problem is she can’t afford it. What follows is an insanely bloody high-rise killfest with some nice social commentary stitched in-between the bloodshed and some fairly inventive murders. Ho proves herself as intense as she is beautiful and obsessed as she is lethal. She’s perfect casting for the gruesome thriller that Open Grave seems to pose itself as.
I must confess that I haven’t seen any of Spanish writer/director Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego’s prior efforts. He’s best known in the States for last year’s Apollo 18, but seems best regarded for El rey de la montaña (King of the Hill) which sees a character called “Quim” (yet another unfortunate character name), and a woman named Bea lost in the woods. The catch here is that someone’s shooting at them.
Lopez-Gallego seems fond of his high concepts, Apollo 18 (although not written by the director) was about unearthed secret footage that explains why no-one’s been back to the moon, and Open Grave (which he also did not write) sees man of the hour Copley play a character who wakes in a pit filled with corpses, unsure of how he got there, or whether or not he himself killed everyone there.
The more I think about it, the more I like it.
Twitch Film has the details along with some further cast members. With the inevitability of Copley-Fest continuing and continuing soon, I’ll catch up on Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego’s films and you catch up on Dream Home. Deal? The preview is below.
