John Cho will be starring in a drama titled Columbus.
In addition to Cho, Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s Michelle Forbes will also be in the film.
Columbus “revolves around a man and young woman from opposite sides of the world, each mourning the potential loss of a parent,” said Director Kogonada.
Cho plays the estranged son of a prominent architectural critic, in Columbus, while Forbes plays a recovering addict.
Columbus is currently shooting in Columbus, Indiana. Kogonada was inspired after a visit to the town. “I felt an immediate sense for a film that would take place there, which would implicitly explore the promise of modernism (an ongoing quest for me),” he said.
