After the 92nd Academy Awards Parasite two years ago, Poon Joon Ho is finally shooting his next film. Deadline has reported that Pon Joon Ho is in talks to write and direct an untitled sci-fi film with Robert Pattinson, who is also in talks to star.
The untitled film will be based on a future novel by Edward Ashton Mickey7 and it only sounds in Pon Joon Ho Lane. The story of the novel tells of Mickey7, who is a consumable: a one-time employee of a human expedition sent to colonize the icy world of Niflheim. «Whenever there is too dangerous a mission – even a suicide one – the crew turns to Mickey,“- said in a description of Deadline. «Once one iteration dies, a new body is regenerated with most of its memories. After six deaths, Mickey7 understands the terms of his deal … and why it was the only colonial position unfilled when he took it.“There is no guarantee that Pon Joon Ho will develop a simple adaptation of the novel, in fact, in the end, things may be completely different, but the basic premise has the potential for something dark and humorous.
Deadline says Pon Joon Ho has been weakly attached to the project since late last year and has met with virtually every writer for the role, but Robert Pattinson eventually ripped them off. This will not be Bong’s first project with WarnerMedia, as it is also developing a limited series based on Parasite together with Adam McKay. Earlier, the director said that the series will be able to include all the ideas that he could not invest in the film.
When I was writing the script, I had so many more ideas that I couldn’t convey in the two-hour duration of the film. I knew that if I had more time to work, I would be able to tell these stories … Although I’m not very familiar with the TV industry, I really consider this limited series an extended film that can delve into stories that haven’t been. do not turn into parasites.
Robert Pattinson will next be seen starring Matt Reeves Batman. The long-awaited film is set to hit theaters March 4, 2022.
