PostSubject: Jang Dong-gun to Star in Hollywood Action Movie   Sat Nov 03, 2007 11:53 am



Korean star Jang Dong-gun will star alongside Kate Bosworth in an upcoming Hollywood movie called "Laundry Warrior," due to start shooting in New Zealand on Friday.

The movie is being produced by "Lord of the Rings" and "Matrix" producer Barrie Osborne and helmed by Korean Lee Seung-moo, according to entertainment industry newspaper Variety on Tuesday. Geoffrey Rush will also star with Bosworth and Jang. A Korean firm in charge of the movie's publicity also confirmed the news.

Previous reports said Jang would be working with Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi, but the PR firm said Zhang couldn't fit the movie into her schedule. The Hollywood actress was chosen for the leading role since the lead female character had changed, the firm said.

"Laundry Warrior" is a futuristic action-fantasy story about an Asian warrior's adventure in the American west. Jang plays the fugitive warrior who hides out in the badlands, where he encounters a town drunk (Rush) and a beautiful woman (Bosworth) who dreams of revenge for the abuse she suffered as a child.

Bosworth has appeared in "Superman Returns", "Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!", "Beyond the Sea," and "Remember the Titans." Rush has starred in "Munich" and the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies. Variety said Jang "is the star of many of Korea's biggest grossing movies including 'Typhoon,' 'Taegukgi' and 'Friend.'"
