Acclaimed Korean actors Lee Sung-min and Jung Jae-young will embark on a new film project this winter.
Helmed by director Lee Jung-ho of "Bestseller" (2010), "The Hovering Blade" [tentative title] is set to crank in on December 10, the movie's production company Ecofilm said in a press release Thursday.
Based on a Japanese novel of the same title written by Higashino Keigo, the mysterious thriller will pivot around a father [Jung] avenging himself on his daughter's death. A police officer [Lee] tries to stop the man's illegal action.
"We tried to heighten the suspense in the film from the original novel, by adding the Korean sensibility," an official from Ecofilm was quoted as saying.
Lee gained a wider popularity this year with MBC's hit medical series "Golden Time." He is currently making his appearance in home-grown play "There" [translated title] in Seoul, Korea.
