Jang Dong-gun and Hyun Bin will star in an action blockbuster described as a Joseon-era zombie flick.

The film, tentatively titled “Outbreak,” tells the story of vicious night creatures that threaten to overtake a Joseon royal palace.

Hyun will play Lee Chung, a character who struggles to protect the palace from the attack.

The film is directed by Kim Sung-hoon, who worked with Hyun for last year’s action flick “Confidential Assignment.” Kim debuted in 2012 with the drama film “My Little Hero.”
