Jeon Do-yeon Joins Kim Nam-gil in Thriller ‘A Bastard’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Cannes competition jury member Jeon Do-yeon has been cast in thriller “A Bastard.”

She will star opposite male star Kim Nam-gil (“Pirates”).

The story involves a detective who falls for the girlfriend of the murderer he is investigating.

Kim is white-hot after a string of TV shows including “School 1,” “Queen Seonduk” and “Bad Guy” and ahead of big-budget seafaring actioner “Pirates.” Production of “A Bastard” will start shortly.

“A Bastard” (which previously went under the title “Rouge”) is fully financed by CGV Collage, the arthouse offshoot of CJ Entertainment’s exhibition division CJ-CGV. International sales will be handled by CJ Entertainment.

Jeon is the only Korean actor to have won a major prize at Cannes: She won the Palme d’Or in 2007 for “Secret Sunshine.”

Jeon will next be seen in “Memories of the Sword,” in which she plays a blind Joseon-era swordswoman alongside Lee Byung Hun (“G.I. Joe”) and Kim Go Eun.
