Unveiled earlier this autumn at the Pusan Internationa this l Film Festival, the US $40 million Korea New Zealand co-production "The Warrior's Way" gears up for a simultaneous release in Korea and the U.S. on Dec 2nd.

With Korea's pan-Asian star Jang Dong-gun in the lead, the fantasy-western is directed by first-timer Sngmoo Lee and produced by Lord of the Ringstrilogy producer Barrie Osbourne. The film co-stars Hollywood actress Kate Bosworth (Superman Returns), playing JANG's love-interest and marks one of the first cross-cultural romances depicted in a commercial Korean feature.

The film also stars Geoffrey Rush and Danny Huston and was shot in New Zealand using facilities and crew from Osbourne's Rings trilogy. The film's soundtrack is by Javier Navarette, who scored the award-winning 2006 Spanish feature Pan's Labyrinth. Actor JANG plays an Asian warrior who gives up his killing ways to seek peace and love in a quiet western township, until trouble tracks him down.
