Ha Ji-won has been cast in her next film, Sector 7 [칠광구], a monster-action flick that not only boasts a 10 billion won budget, but will also be filmed in 3D.
In the movie, Sector 7 is an oil field in which a monster is discovered, leading to a desperate struggle between creature and heroine. (After the success of The Host, this kind of story is unsurprising, no? Still, I greatly enjoyed The Host and Ha Ji-won is on a hot streak after My Love By My Side and Haeundae, so I’m interested.)
According to JK Film, the project was initially to be directed by Yoon Je-kyun, who directed Haeundae. However, due to other projects he is working on (among them Lee Min-ki’s Quick), another director has been brought onboard, Kim Ji-hoon of May 18.
The movie has yet to cast its other actors, and will begin filming in June.
