In some amazing news for Son Ye-jin fans, the Crash Landing on You star is set to make her Hollywood debut soon if a report by Star News, via Soompi, is to be believed. The actress will be starring opposite Sam Worthington of Avatar fame in Cross, which is being directed by Andrew Niccol of The Truman Show fame. Furthermore, it is also being reported that Parasite star Lee Sun-kyun has been offered a role in the upcoming film.

When it comes to the storyline, the sci-fi film is said to be about a multiracial country, which gets split into two sides; the wealthy nation and the poor nation. Ye-jin will be seen as Vera, a woman who lives near the border inside the poor nation whose husband dies while trying to escape to the wealthy side. For now, Vera is alone as a single mother to her son. On the other hand, Sun-kyun will play Gideon, chief of the border protection team while Sam will be playing a character from the wealthy nation.

While Ye-jin's agency confirmed that the actress will be starring in Cross unless there are any huge changes, Sun-kyun's agency revealed that the actor has not yet come to a decision to starring in the film.

Interestingly, Cross has been in development for over a decade with Niccol intrigued to shoot the movie in Korea with Korean actors after visiting the country last year. Korea is the only divided nation in the world and hence, Andrew took inspiration from the country. Moreover, Niccol is said to have personally reached out to Ye-jin himself to star in his film.

Are you excited to see Son Ye-jin and Lee Sun-kyun in Cross alongside Sam Worthington? Let us know your views in the comments section below.

Cross is expected to begin shooting in Korea in March 2021.

Anonymous : Son Ye Jin with her passion for perfection, will definitely succeed. No doubt, SYJ will bring Chungmuro excellence in Hollywood. In an era to have diversity and inclusiveness and to end racism, the "Cross" movie will hopefully, not just tackle about the "crossing the border of divided nation of wealthy and poor" but will also tackle the issue of BLM ( I am hoping that there will be a lead african american actor-Samuel Jackson caliber). "Cross" movie needs to be well represented.... As an Asian -American, I am extremely proud of SYJ as she conquers a big budget, yet socially relevant movie (Gattacca has previously discussed issues of genetic superiority). There are other female Asian noteworthy, most recently Liu Yifei for Mulan (previously in cartoon -voice of Lea Salonga-Broadway diva), however characters of lead female Asians are based on their race/representation (even Tang Wei of Blackhat and Constance Wu of Crazy Rich Asians). I am with positive thoughts that the "Cross" movie and SYJ's role as non-korean will address issues of racial or ethnic disparities, social determinants, and understand the relationship between how population groups (wealthy and poor nation) experience “place” and the impact of “place” and learn how to adapt and co-exist in a divided nation.
