Sung Kang gets a role in thriller starring Sylvester Stallone
Universal’s FAST FIVE is one of the year’s top grossing films, proving the financial viability of the FAST AND THE FURIOUS franchise. Vin Diesel and Paul Walker get top billing in the action-oriented films, but one of its actors just snagged a highly coveted action role.
According to Variety, Sung Kang (who has appeared in the last three FAST AND FURIOUS films as Han) will star in the currently untitled Walter Hill thriller alongside Sylvester Stallone, who’ll play a hitman from New Orleans teaming with a cop from Gotham to avenge their partners’ murders.
Hill will team up with After Dark Films, Dark Castle Entertainment, and IM Global for the project; Warner Bros. will handle distribution. Filming is currently slated to begin in Louisiana before the end of the month.
