Lust, Caution actress Tang Wei is to play a prisoner in Korean director Kim Tae-yong's Late Autumn.
Tang's role is that of an obedient, well-behaved prisoner, out on parole for three days, who encounters Korean heartthrob Hyeon Bin, who plays a runaway counterfeiter.
The story of their short-lived three-day romance is an English-language remake of the Korean art-house classic, Manchu, literally Full Autumn, made by director Lee Man-hee in the 1960s.
Shooting of the Korean-American film started in Seattle on Jan 12. It is slated for release in South Korea later this year.
Tang has previously played opposite Hong Kong singer-actor Jacky Cheung in another romantic art-house film, Crossing Hennessy.
