Gong Yoo in talks for sci-fi film along with Suzy, Park Bo-gum, Choi Woo-shik, Jung Yu-mi

Gong Yoo might join the upcoming science-fiction film Wonderland along with other famous actors.

On March 11, Gong Yoo’s agency Management SOOP revealed that the Kim Ji-Young: Born 1982 actor had received a casting offer for the film and is reviewing the script.

Wonderland is set in a world where those who have lost their loved ones in real life can reunite with them through simulations. Gong Yoo is considering the role of a widower and single dad who asks for the simulation of his deceased wife for the sake of his daughter. Chinese actress Tang Wei is in talks to play the wife.

The film is set to have a star-studded cast as several other A-list actors are also in talks to star in it. Suzy (Ashfall) and Park Bo-gum (Coin Locker Girl) might play a young couple who become incapable of interacting with each other after Park’s character falls into a coma.

Meanwhile, Parasite actor Choi Woo-shik and Jung Yu-mi, who also starred in Kim Ji-young, Born 1982 opposite Gong Yoo, are being courted to play characters that run and control the said simulations. 

Wonderland will be helmed by Kim Tae-yong, whose movies Memento Mori (1999) and Family Ties (2006) are often hailed as iconic Korean films.
