Lee Byung-hun to star in "The Magnificent Seven" in Hollywood

2015/05/05 | 686 views | Permalink | Source

Actor Lee Byung-hun is starring in a remake of "The Magnificent Seven" right after "Beyond Deceit". This is Lee Byung-hun's fifth Hollywood movie after the "G.I. Joe" series, "Red 2" and "Terminator: Genisys".

"The Magnificent Seven" was filmed in 1962 in a western village. It's about 7 gunmen. The remade version of it stars Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke and more. Lee Byung-hun plays the role of Billy Rock.

Lee Byung-hun has slowly been taking step after step in Hollywood and is finally bearing fruit. It's true that he is the most stand-out actors who claimed entrance to Hollywood.

Lee Byung-hun starred in "G.I. Joe" as his first Hollywood film. He played Storm Shadow and then progressed into the second series with much more responsibilities.

Lee Byung-hun then moved up surprisingly. He starred in "Red 2" with Bruce Willis, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Anthony Hopkins and John Malkovich. He stood out just as much as the leading casts.

He was then cast for the role of T-1000 in "Terminator: Genisys". T-1000 is the liquid human that appeared a few times in the "Terminator" series and this fact is very exciting for home fans.

He co-starred in "Beyond Deceit" with Al Pacino but it's not clear what his role is. Now that Lee Byung-hun is starring in "The Magnificent Seven", it looks like he's going to become an acknowledged actor in Hollywood soon enough.
