Oscar-winning filmmaker Bong Joon Ho got a bunch of awards for his fantastic dark comedy Parasite, however, is reportedly returning to the sci-fi genre for a new project at Warner Bros. and will see him tackle an off-world setting.
Deadline has revealed that the new sci-fi movie will be adapted from the upcoming novel Mickey7 written by Edward Ashton.
It centers on a man on an expedition to colonize the ice world Niflheim.
The good news doesn’t stop there as British actor Robert Pattinson is attached for a lead role. Pattinson will play Bruce Wayne in Matt Reeves’ new film The Batman which will hit theaters in March, expected to launch a new trilogy for Warner Bros. with Reeves shepherding it.
It’s unclear at this time if the untitled film will have a mostly western cast or will include South Korean actors that have worked with the director in the past. We can assume it’ll be a mix of the two.
Bong Joon Ho’s previous films such as Snowpiercer, Okja, and The Host have explored the sci-fi genre.
