Yoo Hae Jin will star in the Korean remake of the film Still Life.
According to media outlets, Yoo Hae Jin has recently confirmed his appearance in the remake version of Still Life. Written and directed by Uberto Pasolini, Still Life follows a council worker charged with finding the next of kin of those who have died alone embarking on a liberating journey as he chases the life of a man who was found dead in the opposite apartment. Director Min Dong Hyun will direct the remake film.
Originally, the remake version was planned in 2016 when Won Bin proposed a close friend to purchase a remake copyright after being fascinated by the original film. Won Bin participated in the project from the get-go and also expressed his intention to star when the production was in full swing. Major investment/distribution companies paid keen attention to the fact that it might just be Won Bin’s comeback project, but the actor exited the project as he continued to express disagreement over the direction of the adaptation.
It was Yoo Hae Jin who revived the Still Life project, which almost fell through when Won Bin dropped out. It is said that Yoo fell in love with the script and decided to make his comeback after a year.
It is the first time in more than a year that Yoo will return to the big screen since The Battle: Roar to Victory, which was released in August 2019. It is also the first time in about a year for him to resume his acting career since he worked on Space Sweepers, which ended in November last year.
Yoo will first work on Still Life and join Hyun Bin, Daniel Henney, and YoonA for Confidential Assignment 2 next year.
