Korean actor Lee Joon-gi is currently shooting the final installment of the “Resident Evil” franchise to mark his Hollywood debut, his Korean agency confirmed Saturday.

“Lee is shooting (the film) in South Africa,” Namoo Actors said. The firm, however, refused to give more details about Lee’s role in “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter.”

The confirmation came after “Resident Evil” star Milla Jovovich on Friday posted a photo with Lee to her Instagram, revealing they were filming together. 

Lee, 33, rose to local fame with his 2005 film “The King and the Clown” and has since appeared in many TV series and films, most recently as a scholarly vampire in MBC’s “Scholar Who Walks the Night.”

“The Final Chapter” is scheduled to be released in theaters in January 2017.
