Ghost in the Shell’s Chin Han joins Dwayne Johnson and Neve Campbell in Skyscraper
Chin Han (Ghost In the Shell, Independence Day: Resurgence) has been cast in Universal Pictures and Legendary’s Skyscraper, joining star Dwayne Johnson (Furious 7, San Andreas). The film, which will re-team Johnson with his Central Intelligence director Rawson Marshall Thurber, will hit theaters on Friday, July 13, 2018. The film recently cast Neve Campbell in a lead role.
Global icon Dwayne Johnson leads the cast of Legendary’s Skyscraper as former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader and U.S. war veteran Will Ford, who now assesses security for skyscrapers. On assignment in China he finds the tallest, safest building in the world suddenly ablaze, and he’s been framed for it. A wanted man on the run, Will must find those responsible, clear his name and somehow rescue his family who is trapped inside the building…above the fire line.
Written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (Central Intelligence, We’re the Millers), the 3D action-thriller is produced by Beau Flynn (San Andreas, Baywatch), Johnson and Thurber. Skyscraper’s executive producers are Dany Garcia (Baywatch, Ballers) and Hiram Garcia (San Andreas, Central Intelligence). Wendy Jacobson (San Andreas) is co-producer.
Chin Han is known for playing Togusa in the recent film Ghost in the Shell, as well as Lau in The Dark Knight. He played Councilman Yen in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Commander Jiang in Independence Day: Resurgence. Han plays Detective Henry Cho in the TV series Lethal Weapon and played Jia Sidao in the series Marco Polo.
