  • Actress Kim Yun-jin has been cast as the lead actress of the U.S. movie `Georgia Heat.` She will star with the Hollywood star Billy Bob Thornton.

    `Georgia Heat,` whose filming is set to start in June 2005, will be produced by Janet Young, who has also produced `The Joy Luck Club,` which is well-known in Korea as well, and new director Mora Stephens.

    Kim Yun-jin`s manager, Park Jung-hyuk, said Dec. 20 that after Kim received the offer to star in the movie in mid-October, she exchanged emails with the movie`s director twice, and had lunch with Billy Bob Thornton and Janet Young in Los Angeles in mid-November. Billy Bob Thornton is said to have decided to cast Kim after he saw her star in a popular NBC show `Lost.`
