Actress Han Hyo Joo is making her American debut after being cast in the ‘Bourne‘ movie franchise‘s spin-off television series, ‘Treadstone‘. According to an eDaily report citing industry sources, she has been studying English and is currently filming for the show in Budapest, Hungary.
The premise of the series won’t be a surprise to anybody familiar with the films.
The series, which was originally ordered to pilot back in April, centers on the fictional CIA black ops program Operation Treadstone, which was the program that created superspy Jason Bourne. The covert program uses behavior modification protocol to turn recruits into nearly superhuman assassins. The first season follows sleeper agents across the globe as they’re mysteriously “awakened” to resume their deadly missions.
Aside from Han Hyo Joo, so far the other cast members are Jeremy Irvine and Brian J. Smith, who I have never heard of before. Honestly? Maybe that’s a good thing.
All I know is they better keep the theme.
