The popularity of South Korean actor, Lee Min Ho is soaring high and recent reports about the "Legend of the Blue Sea" star say that Hollywood has offered the actor a role in the remake of 'City Hunter'. According to Korea Portal, the rumored boyfriend of Suzy Bae is to be part of a Brad Pitt film which is reportedly the Hollywood version of the SBS drama of the same name.

The lead role may possibly be played by Brad Pitt, one of the most popular actors in the field of action and suspense, Yibada reported.

According to the report, Brad Pitt and Lee Min-ho are expected to have some action scenes together. Just like the original "City Hunter" TV series, it is expected that there will be a lot of stunts.

However, neither Lee Min-ho nor Brad Pitt confirmed anything about it yet and therefore fans should take everything with a grain of salt until any official statement is released.

Moreover, this is not the first time that Lee Min-ho is rumoured to be working with Hollywood actor Brad Pitt. In fact, sometime in 2015, Soompi had reported that "The Heirs" star had received a proposal to work alongside Angelina Jolie's estranged husband as well as Chinese actors Zhang Hanwei and Fan Bingbing, for a film entitled "Raid", which is now-shelved.

In other news, Lee Min Ho will possibly be a part of the hit KBS2 drama "Descendants of the Sun 2". "Descendants of the Sun" wrapped up in April, last year but it is still one of the most talked about dramas. So to live up to the standard, the KBS2 series starring Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki is to cast "The Legend of the Blue Sea" star Lee Min Ho, Yibada reported.
