Paramount Pictures has announced a brand new theme park and resort complex will open in South Korea in 2011. The park will include rides and attractions based on its film portfolio including Mission Impossible and Lara Croft Tomb Raider.

Ironically, the studio recently rebranded its Kings Island Tomb Raider thrill ride to The Crypt, removing reference to the original video-game it was based on.

"South Korea is a fast-growing and attractive market," said Michael Corcoran, president of Paramount Pictures Corp's consumer products and recreation group. "It's a business-friendly market and culturally sophisticated."

The 1.5-billion-dollar theme park project is a joint venture between Paramount Pictures and a South Korean auto retailer.
