K-Pop: Lost in America: What We Know So Far?
Deadline exclusively reported that Rebel Wilson and Charles Melton are headlining an upcoming film K-Pop: Lost in America.
The Australian actress is famous for her role as Fat Amy in Pitch Perfect and recently appeared in Netflix’s Senior Year while Charles Melton is best known for his character Reggie Mantle on The CW TV show Riverdale.
According to the outlet, it depicts the story of the emerging K-pop group who “finds themselves mistakenly stranded in Waco, Texas” right before their Hollywood debut at Madison Square Garden.
Trying to get back on their schedule they had to overcome differences and succeed in “crazy obstacles” to get to New York City despite not having “phones, no money, and no transportation.”
Interestingly, they learned to love Texas and vice versa.
It stimulates the viewer’s question of whether the breaking Kpop group will have their dream performance at Madison Square Garden.
As noted by the outlet, the upcoming film is expected to begin its production this fall and is helmed by JK Youn, who is behind the films Haeundae and Ode to My Father.
In addition, K-Pop: Lost in America was executive produced by Interstellar’s Linda Obst and Miky Lee of Parasite.
Aside from Cha Eun Woo, Rebel Wilson, and Charles Melton, officials also stated that they are planning to cast “actual K-pop stars in the movie.”
With this, viewers could expect more familiar faces headlining K-Pop: Lost in America cast.
