By Pierce Conran

Auditions appear to have wrapped up for Lee Chang-dong's sixth film Burning as it was announced today that newcomer Jeon Jong-seo will take on the lead female role in the adaptation of Haruki Murakami's short story Barn Burning, originally published in The New Yorker.

Yoo Ah-in (Veteran) is also on board for one of the two male lead roles in the mystery-thriller while Steven Yeun (Okja) was reportedly offered the other part. Production begins in the middle of this month and the film is expected to be released in the first half of next year, with many already predicting a slot in the 2017 Cannes Film Festival lineup.
