Top Korean actor Jang Dong-gun's first Hollywood debut film "The Warrior's Way" will open in theaters in North America on December 3, according to the film's investor Wellmade Star M on Friday.

"The Warrior's Way," helmed and written by Lee Seung-moo, is a Western fantasy film based on a swordsman named Yang, played by Jang, who flees to a forgotten American town in the west to escape his bloody past but gets caught up in a battle with a local group of bandits.

The movie cast also includes some of Hollywood's biggest names including Kate Bosworth, Danny Huston and Geoffrey Rush.

American firm Relativity Media, co-producers of Hollywood blockbusters "Salt" (2010) starring Angelina Jolie and "Public Enemies" (2009) starring Johnny Depp, had bought the distribution rights for "The Warrior's Way" in the U.S. in July.

Wellmade Star M is a Korea-based talent management agency in charge of the careers of actors Ha Ji-won and Kim Nam-joo but the firm ventured into television and movie production starting 2007 through "The Warrior's Way," where they have invested 10 million dollars.
