Train To Busan

South Korean zombie blockbusters get Hollywood treatment …


South Korean blockbuster Train To Busan received a Hollywood remake, and the project already has a director. Timo Tehyanto is in charge of filming for New Line Studio, reports Deadline. The original film, released in 2016, was a zombie apocalypse thriller directed by Yon Sang-ho. Mostly, this occurs on the trains going from Seoul to Busan, as a chemical leak at a biotech plant caused a zombie outbreak in the country. If an infected woman gets on the train unnoticed before leaving the station, the lives of all the passengers on board are suddenly threatened. This film stars Gong Yo, Ma Dong-sok, and Jung Yu-mi. A sequel to the zombie apocalypse Peninsula effect is released in 2020.
