Liam Neeson Joins Korean War Film

Liam Neeson is in talks to star as U.S. Army General Douglas MacArthur in John H. Lee’s South Korean war film “Operation Chromite” at Taewon Entertainment.

The story will deal with the Battle of Incheon, a key battle of the Korean War in 1950 in which United Nations forces launched a surprise attack against communist North Korean forces.

The film will deal with the exploits of a group of Korean soldiers taking part in the battle, but no other cast has been announced yet. Lee Man-Hee (“71: Into The Fire”) penned the script and filming begins at the end of the year ahead of a mid-2016 release.
