Zip Cinema, which previously produced #ALIVE, The Most Ordinary Love, The Priests, and more, will be in charge of production. CJ Entertainment will be distributing the film throughout Korea.

Broker will revolve around baby boxes, which are boxes set up for families who cannot provide for their babies to give them away anonymously.

A release date has not been set, but it is supposed to begin filming this year.
