It was recently revealed that Tilda Swinton will re-team with Snowpiercer director Bong Joon-ho for his next movie, and we now know what that will be and who is set to join the Doctor Strange actress as part of the cast.
As suspected, the filmmaker is going to move ahead with Okja, a multilingual monster movie which follows a young girl’s journey from Korea to America. She’ll act as the female lead, while a number of English speaking actors will take part in scenes set in New York.
Speaking of the other actors, we now know who at least four of them will be, as The Wrap has revealed that Jake Gyllenhaal (Southpaw), Paul Dano (Love & Mercy), Bill Nighy (Shaun of the Dead) and Kelly Macdonald (Boardwalk Empire) have all joined the cast. With production set to begin early next year, more additions will no doubt be made soon, but this is a very impressive start, to be sure.
Plot details for Okja are obviously pretty vague as of right now, so hopefully we’ll hear more soon. Based on Snowpiercer though, we’re no doubt in store for something very special.
