“The Innocent Man” starlet Park Si-yeon and veteran actor Ahn Seong-gi have been cast in a new Hollywood pic funded by a Korean venture capital firm.
The pic’s investment company SOVIK Venture Capital said that the two Korean stars will join the upcoming film “The Last Knights,” co-starring Hollywood big names Morgan Freeman, Clive Owen and English actor Benedict Cumberbatch.
The action epic will depict a loyal and brave general named Raiden [played by Owen] and his upright lord named Bartok [played by Freeman] who stand against corrupt power and get involved in their once-in-a-lifetime incident.
Park will play a deprived woman named Hannah who arouses compassion from people being a wife of corrupted man of power Geja Mot [played by Cumberbatch]. Ahn will take a role of Hannah's father Auguste who later gives his helping hand to Raiden.
While Japanese action-professional director Kiriya Kazuaki hold the megaphone, named Hollywood producers join the project such as Jay Stern, the producer of hit trilogy “Lush Hour” and more recently, “Horrible Bosses”(2011).
Providing a chance for acclaimed movie staffs from different countries work together, the big screen project cranked in at Prague, the Czech Republic on November 5. The movie is set to open in North America and throughout the world in winter of 2013, the firm explained.
