Bong Joon-ho’s new work ‘Mickey 17’, confirmed to be released in 2024…
Director Bong Joon-ho’s new film “Mickey 17” confirmed its release date and released its first teaser video.
Warner Bros. drew attention on its official Twitter account on the 6th (Korea Standard Time) by releasing a 30-second teaser video with the release date, saying, “Mickey17, starring Bong Joon-ho and Robert Pattinson.”
The released teaser video shows Robert Pattinson opening his eyes in an unknown space. “Mickey 17” stars Robert Pattinson, Stephen Yeon, Naomi Aki, and Mark Ruffalo.
Mickey17 is based on Edward Ashton’s science fiction novel Mickey 7 and tells the story of a cloned human pioneering an unknown planet. However, Variety reported, “It is an adaptation of Mickey 7, but the plot has not yet been confirmed, and it is unclear how much director Bong Joon-ho plans to stick to the original.”
Mickey17 is drawing keen attention as director Bong Joon-ho’s first film since “Parasite,” which won four awards at the 92nd Academy Awards, including the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, as well as the Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best International Film. Director Bong Joon-ho reportedly became interested in Edward Ashton’s unpublished manuscript late last year while considering his next work after “Parasite.”
Meanwhile, Mickey 17 will be released in theaters on March 29, 2024.
