The Last Ticket will be the first Hollywood movie shot entirely in Korea.

The action-packed sci-fi thriller will be set in Korea and will star Josh Hutcherson from The Hunger Games series and Tom Hopper from Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City. The story follows Mike Finn (Tom Hopper), who, along with his friend Ronnie (Josh Hutcherson), launches a massive robbery operation to reclaim his loot after being released from prison. However, he is betrayed by a mysterious but beautiful woman, leading to a thrilling chase and revenge in a dystopian future filled with gangster action and a puzzle-like thriller. The Last Ticket brings together flashy and spectacular Hollywood action with the unique characteristics of Korean cinema, creating a new genre that is highly anticipated.

The casting is being handled by the Gersh Agency, one of the top three agencies in America. The role of the beautiful but mysterious female lead, Anya, will most likely go to an A-list Korean actress.

The film’s director, screenwriter, and producer, Santiago Manes Moreno, has built a reputation for himself as a renowned commercial director for luxury brands such as Mercedes-Benz and Giorgio Armani. The crew lineup is equally impressive, including veteran producer Mark G Matthes, who has produced over 30 films, including Precious, which won five Academy Awards. Also, Matthew Russell, who has worked on popular SF and action pics, such as Live Free or Die Hard and The Great Wall, will serve as the visual effects supervisor.

Director Santiago said, “Korea has a unique charm that allows it to express stories about the future in the most sophisticated way possible. That’s why I’ve been visiting Korea frequently for the last ten years.” He added, “Korea’s unique scenery, which perfectly combines tradition and modern architecture, has a different level of quality compared to other Asian countries. Moreover, Korean filmmakers with their cinematic sensibility and attention to detail are the best partners for conquering the global market.”
