Variety reports that South Korean director Shim Hyung is creating an effects-laden D-War starring Jason Behr and Amanda Brooks, in which Los Angeles will be destroyed by a giant serpent in November.

Shot on location in L.A. last year, the $145 million sci-fi pic combines Korean folklore, U.S. thesps and production talent and Korean digital effects.

The film tells the story of a huge, snake-like creature that devastates Los Angeles in its hunt for a girl who can transform it into a dragon.

The cast also includes Robert Foster (Jackie Brown), Chris Mulkey ("Twin Peaks"), Elizabeth Pena (Lone Star), Aimee Garcia, Craig Robinson and John Ales.
