Actor Lee Byung-hun will leave for the U.S. next week to film Hollywood’s sequel to blockbuster movie “G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra.”

An official at Lee’s agency BH Entertainment told 10Asia over the phone on Tuesday that the actor plans to depart for the U.S. early in the week to get ready for the filming of the movie, now known simply as “G.I. Joe 2,” set to start in August.

While in the U.S., Lee will also meet with other producers interested in casting the actor for their productions, the official at BH added.

“About two to three projects have inquired into his schedule but they’re basic inquiries and we have not made any detailed progress regarding his appearance in the projects as of yet,” explained the official.

The 40-year-old actor, long considered one of the most popular actors in Korea, made his Hollywood debut through the hit action figure pic from 2009, playing the role of Storm Shadow opposite actors Channing Tatum and Sienna Miller.

“G.I. Joe 2,” in which Lee’s role is said to have been given more weight than in the first movie, will film for four months before premiering in August 2012.
