James Wan is through with Aquaman and is moving back to his Favorite genre Action Horror. This time he is producing the Remake of The Korean Hit Train to Busan.
New Line Cinema has taken the number one position in acquiring the remake of Train to Busan for the American Market.
All the Majors have been tracking the films even since it opened in 2016 , and all of them put a bid in acquiring the rights to the film , however most of them fell out of the race in the first few rounds it’s self and as on date New line is the front runner to remake the film.
The film is written by the Nun actor Gary Doberman , Gary and Wan have had massive success with Nun and It , and the studio wants to repeat the success.
The original was directed by San-ho Yeon and was a smash hit in South Korea, grossing $85 million overseas and $2 million in the U.S. That’s a fairly decent number considering the film does not have a massive market in America.
The film is about a zombie virus breaking out in South Korea, passengers struggle to survive on the train from Seoul to Busan.
Our sources say that New Line wants Dauberman to direct the film , however he’s not sure of his Schedule.
Train to Busan was a good blend of Action and Horror and we can’t wait to see what the remake will be like.
We at amdb.in wish the entire team all the very best.
