Korean actor Hyun Bin is set to star in a remake of famous Korean film "Manchu", according to his agency on Friday.

"He has pretty much made up his mind and will soon sign on for the film," an official at Star M Entertainment said, adding that negotiations were still underway to also cast Chinese actress Tang Wei of 2007's hit film "Lust, Caution" for the remake.
Another official at the film's production company Boram Film also confirmed Hyun Bin's casting, but said that they are "still in talks with Tang Wei's parties."

"Director Kim Tae-yong is already in Seattle to prepare for filming," the official added. "The film is expected to start shooting near the end of November or early December."

"Manchu", released in 1966, starred two of Korea's most popular actors of the time, Shin Seong-il and Moon Jeong-sook. The story is about a brief, passionate love between a well-behaved female prisoner out on special leave and a fugitive man.
The remake, co-produced with an American production company, will be shot in the U.S. and filmed in English.

Hyun, best known for his role in the 2005 hit drama "My Name Is Kim Sam Soon", recently made headlines after admitting to dating top Korean actress Song Hye-kyo, his co-star in last year's TV series "The World That They Live In."
