About a week ago we told you that Jodie Turner-Smith, known for her controversial leading role in the series ‘Anne Boleyn’, had joined the Star Wars universe to give life to a still unknown character in the series ‘The Acolyte’. Now we have known that the Disney + show will bet on international talent to continue outlining your cast.
Lee Jung-jaeknown for his fantastic work on ‘The Squid Game’, which has helped him make history at the Emmys after winning the award for best actor in a drama series, has been the new signing of the Lucasfilm production led by Leslye Headland, creator of ‘Russian Doll’.
At the moment, the details about the role that the South Korean actor will play in the ‘Star Wars’ universe continue to be kept under lock and key, but it is known that will be the male lead of what is expected to be a thriller set in the last days of the High Republic, which witnesses the emergence of the powers of the dark side of the Force.
This will be the first lead role in an American studio for Lee, who makes his directorial debut this year with the thriller set in 1980 South Korea ‘Hunt’, which has been seen at the Cannes Festival and will also be screened at the Sitges Festival.
‘The Acolyte’ will start shooting at the end of this year, and at the moment it does not have a release date.
