Bong Joon-ho is the Korean director responsible for some truly dazzling cinema. He has already blessed us with films The Host, Memories of Murder and the exceptional Snowpiercer, and now he’s back with a new monster film titled Okja.
The Wrap now confirm that Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano, Bill Nighy and Kelly Macdonald is set to join Tilda Swinton in the film.
Per The Wrap:
Details surrounding the project remain vague, but it is said to feature a Korean female lead and a host of English-language supporting actors whose scenes will be set in New York. Lewis Pictures is producing “Okja,” which is expected to start production early next year.
Swinton has already confirmed her involvement in the project while the other actors are in various stages of discussions, and though official offers have not gone out yet, they’re expected to shortly. Representatives for Gyllenhaal and Dano did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Not much else is known about the film at this time, but we will keep you posted.
