New Delhi: Kate Bosworth, Geoffrey Rush starrer `The Warrior`s Way`, director Sngmoo Lee`s martial arts adventure film, is all set to release in India on December 10.

Produced by Barrie M Osborne of the `Lord of the Rings` fame, the film stars Korean actor Jang Dong-gun in the lead alongwith Bosworth, Danny Huston, Tony Cox and Oscar winner Rush.

The plot revolves around a swordsman, played by Jang, who abandons his warrior clan to start a new life in the American Badlands.

`Superman Returns` star Bosworth plays a beautiful, spirited knife thrower-in-training, orphaned at a young age, who has spent ten years plotting revenge against her attacker, the Colonel (Danny Huston).

"This is not a typical, formulaic film. It’s about a hero who undertakes an epic journey and discovers other characters in crisis, which is a tradition of both Asian warrior movies and classic cowboy movies. I have brought the two elements together in a fresh way," said director Sngmoo Lee, who has also written the film.

Rush, who plays the role of Ron, the seemingly innocuous town boozer, calls the film "an Asian perspective on the rich history and heritage of the American western."

"The film is like a great fable. It`s so pure. There are so many beautiful and disturbing images as well as enormous storytelling energy to it that is timeless and universal," Rush said.

`The Warrior`s Way` will be released in India by Multivision Multimedia India with more than 350 prints in English, Hindi, Tamil & Telugu.
