The Host Sequel Already Planned

Korean filmmakers are moving forward with their own sequel to their local hit “Gwoemul” (aka. “The Host”) which is also being remade in the US.

The first film, released a few months ago to strong acclaim, featured visual effects done by several international FX houses. Production house Chungeorahm Film says all of the sequel, including the effects will be done entirely within Korea.

According to The Korea Times, original director Bong Joon-ho will not helm this sequel.
