We learned back in August of last year that director Yeon Sang-ho was working on a sequel to his cracking 2016 zombie film Train to Busan, a film that proved there was still life in what’s become a seemingly done to death genre. And now the news has broken that the follow-up, titled Peninsula, is likely arriving next year. A spokesman for the distribution company has said:
“We are preparing for the market release by summer 2020, but the schedule for international release has not been decided yet. The film will revisit the same zombie virus that was seen in the original movie, except this time the focus will be expanded to the entire Korean peninsula.”
At the time of writing we are still getting an English-language remake of Train to Busan too, though I personally see little point in this.
