Singer-actor Cha Eun-woo is considering taking a role in a film about K-pop that will be jointly made by Korean and Hollywood producers.

Cha's agency, Fantagio, said Friday that Cha is positively considering joining the movie, "K-Pop: Lost in America," as he was offered to play the role of a K-pop group member. It said whether he will take the role will be confirmed after scheduling and contract details are set.

"K-Pop: Lost in America" will revolve around a K-pop boy group that mistakenly lands in Texas two days before its global debut performance in New York. With no money and no time, the group members struggle to make it to New York.

The film has drawn a lot of attention since the production outline was made public last year, as it will be co-produced by Hollywood producer Lynda Obst and CJ Entertainment Vice Chairwoman Miky Lee. Korean director Yoon Je-kyoon, known for "Haeundae" (2009) and "Ode to My Father" (2014), will take the helm.

Cha, a member of boy band ASTRO in real life, has been building his acting career by appearing in the film, "My Brilliant Life" (2014) and dramas "My ID is Gangnam Beauty" (2018), "Rookie Historian Goo Hae-ryung" (2019) and "True Beauty" (2020-2021), among others.

Meanwhile, U.S. actors Rebel Wilson and Charles Melton will appear in the upcoming film as well, according to U.S. entertainment media, Deadline.
