On July 6, it was reported that Son Ye Jin and Lee Sun Gyun received offers to star in the upcoming Hollywood movie Cross.
The two actors are positively considering the roles, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
Cross will be directed by Andrew Niccol, who directed top science-fiction movies such as In Time, Gattaca, and The Truman Show.
Cross is a movie about a multiracial country wherein the country is divided into two: one side is poor and one side is wealthy.
Starring alongside Son Ye Jin and Lee Sun Gyun is the Hollywood actor Sam Worthington. He starred in famous films such as Avatar, Clash of the Titans, and Fractured. Sam Worthington will play the role of a wealthy man.
Moreover, Son Ye Jin will play the role of Vera, a woman who lives near the border on the poor side of the country. After her husband dies while trying to escape, she is raising her son alone.
Lee Sun Gyun will play the role of Gideon, the leader of the border defense team.
Additionally, Cross has been in development for over 10 years now but director Andrew Niccol became interested in adding in Korean elements to the movie after visiting South Korea in 2019. He was inspired by this as Korea is the only divided nation in the world.
It was also revealed that Andrew Niccol reached out personally to Son Ye Jin.
Son Ye Jin recently starred in the hit Korean drama Crash Landing On You, which is a popular drama series around the world.
Lee Sun Gyun is the lead actor of The Academy Awards winner Parasite.
