“Thieves,” the film dubbed as the Korean “Ocean’s Eleven” has recently wrapped its overseas shoots in Hong Kong and Macau. Its cast and crew marked the end of their one-month work abroad with a prayer ceremony in Macau.
“Thieves” boasts of an A-list cast headlined by Jeon Ji Hyun (“The Snow Flower and the Secret Fan”) and her “Il Mare” co-star Lee Jung Jae (“The Housemaid.”) Kim Yoon Seok, Kim Hye Soo, Oh Dal Soo, Kim Hae Sook and Kim Soo Hyun round up the stellar line-up.
The caper film, directed by Choi Dong Hoon, is about a group of professional thieves who pull a heist of the “Tears of the Sun” diamond in a Macau casino. With the primary location shoots now wrapped, the “Thieves” team come back to Korea to complete production. “Thieves” is aimed at a late 2011 release.
