Kim Woo Bin, Jun Ji Hyun, And More Respond To Reports Of Casting In New Sci-Fi Film
The agencies of several actors have responded to reports of starring in a new film by director Choi Dong Hoon.
On July 4, industry representatives reported that Kim Woo Bin will be making his return with the film “Alien” (working title).
The actor’s agency commented in response, “He is currently just focusing on recovering his health,” and added, “He has not received the scenario yet.”
Jun Ji Hyun, Ryu Jun Yeol, and Kim Tae Ri were also reported to have received casting offers for the movie. In response, Jun Ji Hyun’s and Ryu Jun Yeol’s agencies both commented, “It is true that schedules have been checked, but [the actor] has not received the scenario yet. It is difficult to say that [the actor] is in the stage of reviewing [the offer].” Kim Tae Ri’s agency responded, “She has not received the scenario yet and has not received an official offer yet.
A representative of the director Choi Dong Hoon also clarified that he is still working on the scenario, so nothing has been decided. The source added, “The aim is to begin filming at the end of this year or early next year, but this can change as the scenario is not complete yet.”
Choi Dong Hoon produced hit films including “The Thieves” in 2012 and “Assassination” in 2015, which surpassed 10 million ticket sales each. The director was preparing a film with Kim Woo Bin in 2017 but halted production due to the actor’s cancer diagnosis.
