Jang Dong-gun to Star in Hollywood Action Movie

2007/11/01 | 313 views | Permalink | Source

Korean star Jang Dong-gun will star alongside Kate Bosworth in an upcoming Hollywood movie called "Laundry Warrior" ("The Warrior's Way"), due to start shooting in New Zealand on Friday.

The movie is being produced by "Lord of the Rings" and "Matrix" producer Barrie Osborne and helmed by Korean Sngmoo Lee, according to entertainment industry newspaper Variety on Tuesday. Geoffrey Rush will also star with Bosworth and Jang. A Korean firm in charge of the movie's publicity also confirmed the news.

Previous reports said Jang would be working with Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi, but the PR firm said Zhang couldn't fit the movie into her schedule. The Hollywood actress was chosen for the leading role since the lead female character had changed, the firm said.

"Laundry Warrior" ("The Warrior's Way") is a futuristic action-fantasy story about an Asian warrior's adventure in the American west. Jang plays the fugitive warrior who hides out in the badlands, where he encounters a town drunk (Rush) and a beautiful woman (Bosworth) who dreams of revenge for the abuse she suffered as a child.

Bosworth has appeared in "Superman Returns", "Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!", "Beyond the Sea", and "Remember the Titans". Rush has starred in "Munich" and the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies. Variety said Jang "is the star of many of Korea's biggest grossing movies including 'Typhoon', 'Taegukgi' and "Friend"".
