Korean pop star BoA is adding her name to the growing list of domestic celebrities launching in Hollywood, with her film "Cobu 3D", SM Entertainment announced Friday.
The 24-year-old singer will debut opposite American reality TV star Derek Hough, one of the champions on "Dancing with the Stars".
Duane Adler, writer of "Save the Last Dance" and "Step Up", will direct his original screenplay, alongside producer Robert Cort ("Jumanji", "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure").
"Cobu 3D" tells the tale of two dancers from opposite worlds, who find romance in an underground New York club despite their gangs' rivalry. The film looks to differentiate itself from the recent slew of dance films by focusing on a solid storyline and incorporating a diversity of styles ― hip hop, swing, tap ― according to the press release.
Shooting begins in Toronto and New York this spring, the work is set for release in 2012. Lionsgate International will handle overseas distribution, while CJ Entertainment manages Korea, Japan and China.
The film will begin pre-sales at the February Berlin International Film Festival.
