Lee Byung Hun‘s agency BH Entertainment has confirmed that he will be starring in the upcoming Hollywood remake of the classic 1960 western film “The Magnificent Seven.”
Lee Byung Hun is joining a cast that already includes stars Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Wagner Moura, and Vincent D’Onofrio.
“The Magnificent Seven” is the story of seven gunslingers who are hired to protect a village from bandits.
Although it’s been announced that Lee Byung Hun’s character’s name is Billy Rocks, it’s not clear yet whether he’s playing a good guy or a bad guy!
This won’t be Lee Byung Hun’s first western, as he starred in the international Korean western hit “The Good, the Bad, the Weird” in 2008.
The remake of the film is set to be released in January 2017.
