“Train to Busan” Sequel Targets Mid 2020

One of the best films of 2016 was Korean frantic zombie drama and genre hit “Train to Busan” which scored critical acclaim and grossed just under $100 million worldwide from an $8.5 million budget.

The original film’s story deals with a zombie apocalypse suddenly breaking out in the country and compromises the safety of the passengers on board a bullet train which just left Seoul.

Over a year ago the film’s director Yeon Sang-ho confirmed a sequel was in the works and now The West News reports that Yeon is targeting a Summer 2020 release for the film.

Titled “Bando” (translation: “Peninsula”), the story will take place four years after the major outbreak and the action follows a group of survivors and their fight to escape the infected land.

It’s expected none of the actors from the first film will return. The project is separate from the James Wan-produced English language remake also currently in the works.
