Bong Joon-ho Nabs Jake Gyllenhaal And More For New Monster Feature
Lewis Pictures, which brought us Haemoo, is handling production and the film will be shot both in Korea and New York, in Korean and in English. No names have been floated yet for the lead character, a young Korean girl from the countryside.
Following modern foreign classics such as Memories of Murder (2003) and The Host, Bong proved more than capable when he ascended to the global stage with the big-budget and multi-lingual Snowpiercer. While details of his new story are scant, the creative pedigree is certainly coming into place, including some exciting talent we've heard of but are not at liberty to share. Okja probably won't surface until well into 2017, but we're already dying to see it.
