Jun Ji Hyun, who starred in movies like Windstruck, My Sassy Girl and Daisy, is set to star in a Hollywood produced movie. The movie is a live action adaptation of Blood+, titled “Blood: The Last Vampire.”
Ji Hyun will play the part of Saya, a half human-half vampire who is part of a covert government agency that hunts and destroys demons in post WWII Japan. The movie is said to be directed by Chris Nahon (director of Kiss of the Dragon).
Expected date of release in the US is by 2008.
I’m looking forward to this movie since I also like the anime, Blood+. I hope the visual effects will be good and I’m quite curious to see how they will portray the demons or chiroptera in the movie.
Anyway, good luck for Jun Ji Hyun!
By the way, Ji Hyun’s Hollywood name is Gianna Jun
