Yoo Ah In Discussing Lead Role In “Train To Busan” Director’s New Film
Actor Yoo Ah In could potentially be teaming up with the creative mind behind “Train to Busan” for a new film!
On February 25, Yoo Ah In’s agency UAA told Osen, “Recently, we received the scenario [for a new film titled] ‘The Hell’ (literal title) from Director Yeon Sang Ho. We’re currently at the discussion stage after receiving some advising for Yoo Ah In’s participation in this film. ”
“The Hell” is set in a society where humans face supernatural phenomenon that could be seen as a blessing or a curse, and depicts the human-made hell created to overcome such an unbearable reality. The movie will be directed by none other than “Train to Busan” direct Yeon Sang Ho, and is based off of a webtoon by the same title from creator Choi Kyu Seok, the artist behind the webtoon “Awl.”
The representative from UAA continued, “Though it’s true we are in discussions for Yoo Ah In’s participation, his casting has not yet been fully confirmed.”
Yoo Ah In is starring in two films set to release this year; “Voice of Silence,” and “#ALONE.” Continuing in the trend of Yoo Ah In’s penchant for thriller films, both movies are action thrillers. “Voice of Silence” is a story about two men who are the “cleaners” for a criminal organization and clean up the aftermath of messes and one day are given an unusual order. “#ALONE” stars two survivors of a viral outbreak struggling to survive in a city under lockdown.
