Matin Calme is a movie that tells the story of a medical examiner and a Korean detective who work together to investigate the cause and source of a mysterious corpse they discover, and end up uncovering even more disturbing things. Yoo Yeon Seok would play the role of the Korean detective. The role was originally meant to be played by Kang Dong Won, however due to delays in pre-production, he ultimately stepped down from the role.
Olga Kurylenko previously starred in numerous hit movies such as Hitman, Quantum of Solace, The Water Diviner, Johnny English Strikes Again, and The Room. The production team was scheduled to arrive in Korea at the end of Korea to begin production, with Yoo Yeon Seok scheduled to start filming in April. However, due to the circumstances, it is likely the production will be postponed indefinitely. The production team for Matin Calme is also trying to gather more information at this time.
