If you contributed to the mightily impressive $89 million that Bong Joon-Ho’s 2007’s creature feature The Host notched up, then you’ll be glad to hear that a sequel has been announced.
Co-produced by Korean production company Chungeorahm and Chinese company Stone Man Films, the follow up movie will again blend elements of horror with social commentary. Telling the story of another primordial beast and the path of destruction, and mutilation, it leaves in its wake, the film’s focus will be on the people who lie in its path but who ignore the imminent threat they face because of their fixation with and desire for money.
Chinese director/writer Ning Hao will be pen the screenplay and he’ll be calling the shots too when the film goes into production. No release date has been set yet.
