Will Yun Lee signs for two films

To star in indie projects 'Oka!' and 'Hollywood Untitled'

Will Yun Lee has signed to star in the indie films "Oka! Amerikee" and "Hollywood Untitled."

"Oka!" is based on the true story of Louis Sarno, an American ethno-musicologist who lived among the Bayaka Pygmies in Central Africa for 25 years recording their music. Lee will play Yi, a Chinese businessman, alongside Kris Marshall and Isaach de Bankole.

Lavinia Currier, who wrote the screenplay and will direct, is producing the drama.

"United," written and directed by Mun Chee Yong, will star Lee as a young man struggling with the aftereffects of waking up from a coma caused by a car accident.

Brett Heneberg, Delon Tio and Shannon Makhanian are producing.

Lee, repped by APA and the Collective, has appeared in "Elektra," "Die Another Day," "Torque," the HBO movie "Tsunami" and the FX series "Thief."
