SEOUL, Oct. 20 (Yonhap) -- Film distributor Warner Brothers Korea said Thursday that movie stars Jang Dong-gun, Kim Myung-min, Park Hee-soon and Lee Jong-suk will shoot an upcoming film starting Oct. 22.

"VIP" revolves around a North Korean defector who is the prime suspect in a serial murder and is pursued by both the police and a spy.

Actor Lee is to play the suspect, while Jang was cast as a mediator between the CIA and the Korean National Intelligence Service.

Kim is to star as a policeman and Park will appear as a North Korean spy.

"The film will let people see the new side of each actor. It will be more than just a noir," director Park Hoon-jung, well known for his movie "New World," said.

The crime movie will reach theaters in 2017.
