The idol has been offered a lead role in the upcoming Hollywood project, Kpop: Lost In America and is apparently positively considering the project. Korean news site, StarNews, revealed on 1 July that the production team behind the movie had approached Cha Eunwoo for a role. According to the site, the Astro member had even cleared out his schedule for later this year to actively participate in the movie.
The very same day, his agency, Fantagio Entertainment announced that the idol and actor had in fact been offered a role in Kpop: Lost In America. They also added that although nothing had been confirmed, Cha Eunwoo was positively reviewing it.
Besides Cha Eunwoo, the movie will star actress Rebel Wilson and Riverdale actor Charles Melton. Filming for Kpop: Lost In America will begin in fall this year and it is expected to release sometime next year.
In the film, a K-pop boy band becomes stuck in Texas just days before the start of their international debut tour at Madison Square Garden in New York. In order to reach New York City in time for their American premiere, the group must face a number of "crazy difficulties" without phones, money, or transportation.
South Korean director, JK Youn (Yoon Je Kyun), best known for the films Haeundae and Ode to My Father will be in charge of directing K-Pop: Lost in America. The movie's producers, Linda Obst who worked on Interstellar and Miky Lee who worked on Parasite, announced last year that they intended to use real K-pop singers as extras.
