South Korean actor Hyun Bin and Chinese screen beauty Tang Wei-wei are set to appear in ``Manchu'' (working title), which will go into production at the end of the month in the United States, Boram Entertainment and M&FC announced Friday.

The ``My Lovely Samsoon'' star will play the role of a man on the run who falls in love with a woman who is on special leave from prison, to be played by Tang, who is best-known as the heroine of Ang Lee's epic romance ``Lust, Caution.''

The Korea-U.S. joint project ― Korea's Boram Entertainment and M&FC and the Unites States' North by Northwest ― is a remake of the 1966 masterpiece ``Full Autumn'' (Manchu) by Lee Man-hee. Kim Tae-yong, the award-winning director of ``Family Ties,'' will helm the project.

The movie will be ``a modern interpretation'' of the classic movie and will be set in the United States, said the producers in a statement. It is slated for theatrical release next year.
