Top Korean actor Lee Byung-hun has joined the cast of a new thriller film by famed director Kim Jee-woon, according to Lee's agency BH Entertainment on Thursday.

An official at BH explained that Lee is set to star in the film -- titled "I Saw the Devil" -- although the actor has not finished signing the contract as of yet.

Famed actor Choi Min-sik of Cannes award-winning director Park Chan-wook's film "Old Boy" had already confirmed his appearance in the movie, set to start filming next month.

Lee will play the role of a man who plots revenge against a psychopath killer, played by Choi, after his girlfriend gets murdered.

Kim has directed several notable films including "A Tale of Two Sisters" (2003) and the critically-acclaimed "The Good, the Bad, the Weird" (2008).

Lee, 39, has starred in numerous television dramas and films including Kim Jee-woon's "A Bittersweet Life" (2005) and "The Good, the Bad, the Weird". Choi has appeared in more than a dozen Korean movies, most notably "Old Boy"(2003) and "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance"(2005).
