Lee Min Ho Turns Down Offer to Possibly Star in Film with Brad Pitt
Actor Lee Min Ho was rumored to be acting in the movie “Raid,” but his agency stated that he will not be acting in the film.
According to a Chinese news source, it was confirmed at a electrical group’s conference that a film called “Raid” would be made, telling the story of China’s People’s Liberation Army and the United States Air Force during World War II.
Movie officials stated that the film has $100 million in investments towards the film. The film is an adaption from a true story, made to commemorate the 70thanniversary of World War II. They stated that American actor Brad Pitt, Korean actor Lee Min Ho, and Chinese actors Fan Bingbing and Zhang Hanwei are likely to star.
However, after hearing the contents of this report, Lee Min Ho’s agency issued a denial, saying “We did receive a proposal [for the movie] a while ago, and it’s already been examined [and turned down]. Many proposals are coming in from China but the next project has not been decided yet. He’s currently looking through film and television offers.”
