Actor Jung Woo is cast in new movie “Retrial” (literal title).
The film is based on a real life incident that occurred on August 10, 2000 when a taxi cab driver was murdered. The police later arrested a 15-years-old boy for the crime and he confessed to the crime after undergoing extreme interrogation tactics by the police. The boy would go on to spend 10 years in jail.
Jung Woo will play Lee Joon Young. His character is the attorney who attempts to free the young man from prison and clear his name.
Meanwhile actor Kang Ha Neul has been offered the role of the falsely accused young man and he is currently “positively considering” the offer.
Movie will be directed by Kim Tae Yoon & filming begins July, 2016 in South Korea.
