Actress Bae Doo-na has been cast as the heroine in world-renowned Japanese film director Hirokazu Koreeda’s upcoming film. Koreeda, who is currently visiting the Pusan International Film Festival with his latest work “Aruitemo Aruitemo,” told a magazine jointly published by Cine 21 and Hollywood Report magazines, that he has cast Bae as the heroine of his upcoming fantasy melodrama.
The film director explained that his new film is about a non-human entity that learns to open up to people, learn their language and learns to love. He also added that he is a huge fan of the Korean actress. It will be Bae’s second role in a Japanese film since “Linda Linda Linda,” a 2004 film directed by Nobuhiro Yamashita.
Koreeda became widely acknowledged through his 2004 film “Nobody Knows” which won an award for the Best Male Actor in a Leading Role.
Barunson Entertainment said details of the film, including the title, have yet to be confirmed. The film shoot will begin in December.
