Bong Joon-Ho

After Bong Joon-ho directed ‘Parasite’ in 2019, it created a history among the audience. The film managed to register a record success at the box office by collecting a whopping $259 million worldwide. Now, the director is keen to direct another film taking Robert Pattinson as lead.



After a gap of 2 years of the success of Parasite, it looks like Bong Joon-Ho is ready to direct yet another film.

As per the latest Hollywood news, the director is about to feature ‘The Batman’ star Robert Pattinson in his upcoming film.

The sources revealed that Bong will soon write and direct a script which is based on Edward Ashton’s upcoming novel ‘Mickey7. It’s also known that he will back the film through his production venture.

The novel is expected to feature in 2022 by Macmillan’s imprint St Martin. It follows Mickey7, who is an Expendable: a disposable employee on a human expedition sent to colonize the ice world Niflheim.

This is what the synopsis of the book actually reads, “Whenever there’s a mission that’s too dangerous — even suicidal — the crew turns to Mickey. After one iteration dies, a new body is regenerated with most of his memories intact. After six deaths, Mickey7 understands the terms of his deal… and why it was the only colonial position unfilled when he took it,”

As the film is going to be inspired by the novel, but there is a slight twist. As Bong is known to make films with a substance, he’s not very keen to take all from the source.

For example, his 2003 released film ‘Snowpiercer’ was based on a science fiction. Further the film was made from a novel ‘Le Transperceneige’ by Jean-Marc Rochette, Benjamin Legrand and Jacques Lob.

As per the sources from Deadline, author Ashton had already presented the script to the director during mid 2021 in the form of an unpublished book.It was after going through the script that the director developed an interest to make a film out of it.

It’s also being said that before finalizing the script to make a film, Bong met with a number of renowned Hollywood stars. He gave the green signal to the project after finalizing the name of Pattinson.

‘Parasite’ became the most successful film of 2019 as the film managed to fetch the 2019 Oscars including the best director and best picture wins. And it’s a great achievement for a Korean language film though.



On the work front, Pattinson’s next will be ‘The Batman’ which is expected to release on March 4.
