Last month, we shared news that there was a Train to Busan sequel potentially in the works. Sadly, we have nothing more to share on that front, but in the same vein, we also now have some news regarding a potential remake of the fun, a zombie flick from South Korean director Yeon Sang-ho.
However, if subtitles really aren’t your thing, then fret not, it looks like there is a remake on the way, courtesy of producer James Wan and writer Gary Dauberman, Deadline reports. If you’re unaware, Wan is directing the upcoming Aquaman film, but it also the creative mind behind the Conjuring mega-franchise, which consists of The Conjuring, The Nun, and Annabelle films. Gary Dauberman is a writer in that universe who also had a hand in the critically-acclaimed IT adaptation.
The project has five bidders circling it, so it seems like only a matter of time before something actually comes of it.
Admittedly, I can see people’s aversion to seeing Hollywood remakes of foreign films, but in my mind, they can do nothing but good, shedding light on the original movies all while expanding the mythology of the world. Who knows? Maybe we’ll get instances like Let Me In or Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, where the remakes end up being just as good as the originals.
But what do you think? Are you happy to see a film you love potentially get a wider audience, or are you just annoyed that Hollywood doesn’t bank on original ideas? Let us know down below!
