Liam Neeson’s latest role involves him taking time out from punching east European thugs in the face. Instead, the actor takes on the very real life part of General Douglas MacArthur in John H. Lee’s South Korean feature “Operation Chromite”.
The project details the Battle of Incheon which took place a few months into the Korean war. U.N. forces landed in the South Korean harbor city to drive out the North Koreans, and is recognized as a turning point for U.N.-backed South Korea against the communist North.
The film will focus on eight Korean war heroes involved in the story which was shot late last year and is slated to open in South Korea later this year. No U.S. distributor has yet been set.
