On August 13th the film director Yeon Sang Ho confirmed a sequel to ‘Train to Busan‘.
Train to Busan was released in July 2016 in South Korea, starring Gong Yoo, Ma Dong-seok and Jung Yu-mi. The film premiered in the Midnight Screenings section of the 2016 Cannes Film Festival on 13 May. On 7 August, the film set a record as the first Korean film of 2016 to break the audience record of over 10 million theater goers.
The story focused on a viral outbreak in South Korea where people became zombies. The passengers on a KTX train going from Seoul to Busan find ways to survive the zombie attack.
However the film title would not be called Train To Busan 2. The film director Yeon said,
“It is an extension of Train To Busan, after the virus has spread throughout Korea, but the characters are not the same. It shares the same world view and is a zombie action film that deals with the aftermath on the peninsula of what happened in Train To Busan.”
Yeon further added,
“I’m still writing the script, but the scale is rather large since there will be action with something to it.”
However, we are still going to miss Gong Yoo in the sequel, Let’s wait till the actors are confirmed for the sequel!
