Eric Brevig will once again work his magic behind the camera.

Brevig -- who made a name for himself as a visual-effects wizard on films like 'Pearl Harbor' and 'Total Recall' -- has been tapped to direct a 3D Korean War drama titled' 17 Days of Winter,' according to the Hollywood Reporter.

"The story of this forgotten war needs to be told," Brevig said. "We now have the ability to tell it in an immersive, compelling way that does justice to the humanity exhibited under such inhumane circumstances." Eric Brevig will once again work his magic behind the camera.

Brevig -- who made a name for himself as a visual-effects wizard on films like 'Pearl Harbor' and 'Total Recall' -- has been tapped to direct a 3D Korean War drama titled' 17 Days of Winter,' according to the Hollywood Reporter.

"The story of this forgotten war needs to be told," Brevig said. "We now have the ability to tell it in an immersive, compelling way that does justice to the humanity exhibited under such inhumane circumstances."

In other words: This is not a sequel to '(500) Days of Summer.'


This will be Brevig's third trip behind the camera, following the 2008 'Journey to the Center of the Earth' and live-action/animated remake, 'Yogi Bear 3D,' in theaters this year.

Hollywood seems to have left the Korean War in the dust in recent years, especially during the last two decades. While 'Big Fish' used the war as a time piece, there haven't been any big films focusing on it since 'MacArthur', 'M*A*S*H'
and 'Pork Chop Hill.. Maybe Berg's film will change all that?

Well, let's wait until we see Yogi in 3D first.
