Actress Son Ye-jin is poised to make her Hollywood debut soon in the film "Cross," with final contract negotiations underway, her agency said Monday.
"Cross" will be directed by Andrew Niccol, who also made "The Host" (2013) and "Good Kill" (2014), and is set in a futuristic multiracial society.
Niccol conceived the idea for the film based on the division of the Koreas when he visited here last year.
It is slated to be shot on location here in the first half of next year.
She will be cast opposite Sam Worthington, an Australian best known for his role in "Avatar."
Lee Sun-kyun, whose recent work includes Bong Joon-ho's Oscar-winning "Parasite," has also been offered a role but has to wait and see what will happen to his other planned project amid the coronavirus epidemic.
