According to BH Entertainment agency which manage Lee Byung Hun's career, it was the Korean actor who had extended the invitation to Josh Hartnett to visit Korea for the 14th Pusan International Film Festival as well as promos for the movie ‘I Come With The Rain’ set to be released in Korea on October 15th.

It has not been announced yet when the movie will be screened but it is quite a certainty that Josh as a lead role will have to fly to Korea.

Hope Josh travels to Seoul to promote the movie. I like when he is interviewed to talk about his work and only his work.

Since I refuse to lose the hope the movie will not be released elsewhere than Japan, I have been busy discussing it on various movie sites. And eventually I have made contact with someone who has acted in the movie alongside ... Josh.
Here an extract of our cosy little conversation ... Enjoy
Me : Have you seen it ?
X : Hi. No, haven't seen it. I'm in Los Angeles and it hasn't played here either. I acted in it a year and a half ago, but from what others have told… Continue

ICWTR was shown at the Fresh Film Fest in Czech Republic on the 13th & 15th of August.
Here a comment left by an imdb's user about the screening : " Just got back home from the screening. It's a shame that so few people had a chance to actually see this movie so far. "
Indeed ... it is a shame !

While still waiting for ICWTR to get more release dates, I found this video interview of one of its producer. Fernando Sulichin (Macom X, Mary, Babel) does not talk specifically about ICWTR but does tell his motivtions for producing a movie.

Obviously it may not help much ICWTR getting a theatrical release in the US, but it is better than doing nothing...
Btw, the 'Queen of the South' project may not be totally dead for Josh. IMDb has updated the satus of the project and change the filming location of Mexico to Costa Rica. Furthermore, an IMDb user has reported that the project is still alive and that the production… Continue
