The sequel to South Korean director Yeon Sang-ho Train to Busan seeks to amplify the horror, with survivors of the zombie apocalypse living in a rare world of safety, food and rules and pushed to the limits of their endurance.
The official synopsis reads[via[via[via[viaDisgusting bloody]: “Four years after the total decimation of South Korea in Train to Busan, Jung-seok (Gang Dong-won), a soldier who had previously escaped the wasteland, relives the horror when he is assigned to a secret operation with two simple objectives: recover and survive.
“When his team unexpectedly comes up against survivors, their lives will depend on whether the best – or the worst – of human nature prevails in the worst circumstances.
Actress Lee Jung-hyun plays one of the survivors alongside child actress Lee Re. Yeon said ScreenDaily that he thinks the young star will become “more [popular] that Ma Dong-seok [aka Don Lee] in Train to Busan“.
Among other actors, Kwon Hae-hyo, who was a voice actor in Yeon’s award-winning animation in 2013 Limitation; Kim Min-jae, who appeared in the director’s 2018 live action film Psychokinesis, and the filmmaker and independent actor Koo Kyo-hwan.
IMDB.com is currently listing a release date for August 2020. However, with the coronavirus pandemic, the deployment of the South Korean film may well be delayed as is the case with dozens of other films.
