I’m just gonna come right out and say it. Yeon Sang-ho’s South Korean zombie flick Train to Busan, released in 2016, is one of the best zombie movies of all time. Intense, terrifying and packed with emotional depth, it’s also just plain one of the best horror movies in recent years, so we’re excited to report that it’s getting a VR adaptation.
Train to Busan, which also got an animated prequel in the form of Seoul Station, “is to be adapted as virtual reality property,” Variety reports today. The site adds, “It could be delivered as a piece of location-based entertainment, as well as a VR video game.”
Contents Panda signed a contract with Vividthree Productions to adapt the zombie film.
“We believed in the possibilities because ‘Train to Busan’, a film that has mesmerized audiences in Asia and beyond, deserves to be adapted into a multisensory format. That would allow fans of the film to experience the zombie apocalypse action thriller in virtual reality,” said Charles Yeo, CEO of Vividthree.
Meanwhile, Train to Busan is also set to get an English-language remake.
