South Korean helmer Kim Ji-woon has cast Oldboy topliner Choi Min-sik and Korean Wave star Lee Byung-hun in thriller Saw a Devil. Lee, who was last seen in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, plays a man pursuing the psychopath, played by Choi, who killed his fiancee. Devil, which was formerly called Night in the Subtropics, begins lensing early February. The pic is Lee’s third film with Kim, following 2005’s A Bittersweet Life and 2008’s The Good, the Bad, the Weird, which both screened at the Cannes Film Festival. Choi’s last pic was Himalaya, Where the Wind Dwells in 2008. His credits also include 2005’s Lady Vengeance, which was directed by Oldboy helmer Park Chan-wook.
