Space Sweepers (2021

The film’s initial working title is Lightning Arc (Korean: 번개 호; RR: Beongaeho).
Joe Sun-hee began writing his story 10 years before the film was released after a friend talked to him about the dangers of extraterrestrial debris. All commenced with the impression that extra-terrestrials were compiling vacuum debris. [He] heard these fast-moving fragments of space debris grow and cause space collisions [and] realized that the subject was covered in animation and games, but never in a film. [He] started writing the script, wondering how a Korean with a persistent mentality would approach the problem.
Visual effects company Dexter Studios, which was behind the production of the action film Together with the Gods: Two Worlds and Ashfall, was hired to sweep space.
