Movie ‘Tazza’ has been greenlit for a third installment.
According to a film news source, the scenario for the new movie ‘Tazza 3’ has been recently completed and they’re looking into officially kicking things off.
‘Tazza 3’ has been in the talks with director Kwon Oh Kwang since 2015 when distribution company Sidus signed a contract with him. It has been revealed that director Kwon Oh Kwang has recently finalized the scenario.

The ‘Tazza’ series first launched in 2006 and was directed by Choi Dong Hoon, followed by ‘Tazza 2’ in 2014 by Kang Hyung Chul. Though the third film was slated for a 2016 release, it was pushed back due to working on the script.
A representative commented, “If the alleged scenario were to be revealed, it will draw much attention. Since the project is still in its early stages they are unable to disclose any information at this time and appear to be taking many precautions to prepare for the film.”
Apart from the script, another reason the film received a lot of praise was the leading cast. With actor Jo Seung Woo (Tazza: The High Rollers) and Big Bang’s T.O.P (Tazza: The Hidden Card) starring in the first two installments, many are wondering who will take on the main character for the third installment. A representative commented, “In addition to Jo Seung Woo and Choi Seung Hyun (T.O.P), the leading female roles were also a big hit such as Kim Hye Soo and Shin Se Kyung. On a side note, both actors worked on ‘Tazza’ while they were in their mid-20s.”
Furthermore, “‘Tazza 3’ is being set up to be a blockbuster film consisting of various charming characters…It’s all up to the director at this point.”
Netizens commented, “Whoever takes on the leading role won’t be able to surpass Jo Seung Woo,” “Compared to the first one, ‘Tazza 2’ had a different feel to it. Hope the third is as good as the first,” “No one can beat Jo Seung Woo, that’s for sure!”
