Im Si-wan considers joining Song Kang-ho, Lee Byung-hun in new film

Im Si-wan might be joining the cast of a new disaster film!

On April 6, Im Si-wan’s agency Plum A&C confirmed reports that the actor had received an offer to star in the upcoming film Declaration Of Emergency. He is said to be reviewing the script and is yet to make his decision.

Declaration Of Emergency is set in the backdrop of an aviation disaster, where pilots on a flight must make an emergency landing to save all the passengers and crew members. It is helmed by the acclaimed director Han Jae-rim, whose past films include The King (2017) and The Face Reader (2013).

The film is a big-budget project starring some A-list actors from the Korean film industry. Song Kang-ho, star of the Oscar-winning film Parasite, and Lee Byung-hun (Ashfall) are already confirmed to headline the movie. Jeon Do-yeon (Beasts Clawing At Straws) and Kim Nam-gil (The Closet) are also in talks to join the main cast.

If Im Si-wan accepts the offer, Declaration of Emergency will mark his second film role this year. The actor is already set to appear in the sports movie Boston 1947 along with Son Ye-jin, Ha Jung-woo, and Bae Sung-woo. His last movie role portrayal was in The Merciless (2017), in which he played an unruly prisoner along with Sol Kyung-gu.

Declaration of Emergency was originally scheduled to film in March, but the shooting has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
