Previously, it was announced that Kang Dong Won and Yoo Ah In have been confirmed as leads in a new film, 'Burning'. A similar announcement said that Sulli was considering a female lead role. However, the latest report states that the movie production has now been canceled altogether.
According to an insider, director Lee Chang Dong, who was scheduled to make his return after 7 years away from directing, decided to cancel the production of 'Burning'. This is not the first time director Lee canceled his productions. Back in 2013, a similar incident occurred for a film in talks with actors Sol Kyung Gu, Won Bin, and Zhang Ziyi as director Lee announced, "I'm not going to do it."
At the 'Busan International Film Festival' last month, director Lee also said about his new film, "I'm preparing for a project that's possible in reality. If it works out well then filming is looking to start in November. However, the preparation process is always difficult. There are a lot of issues that can occur. Therefore, I cannot make any definite statements."
Stay tuned for updates.
