Actor Song Seung-hun will appear alongside Nanako Matsushima of Japan in a remake of the Hollywood blockbuster "Ghost."
The film's production company CJ Entertainment on Wednesday announced, "'Ghost,' probably the best romantic fantasy of the 20th century, will be revived 20 years after the original was made. The roles originally played by Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze will be reinterpreted by Song and Matsushima."
Song said, "I made up my mind to do it right after I read the screenplay, since the original was exceptional. I'm honored to have the part and I'll give it my best shot."
Matsushima is well-known in Korea as well through her performance in the Japanese version of the popular drama "Boys Over Flowers."
The film is being co-produced with Andrew Cripps, president of Paramount Pictures International. Shooting is scheduled to start in June, and a release date is being worked out.
