James Wan on Board to Produce a Remake of 2016’s Kickass Zombie Film, ‘Train to Busan’!



With Yeon Sang-ho working on a sequel to his 2016 zombie hit Train to Busan, we’ve learned tonight that an English-language remake is also in the works. As reported by Deadline, James Wan will be producing the remake, with Gary Dauberman (IT, The Nun) writing the script!

The site details, “I’m hearing that five bidders are circling or have made bids, and that the rights package will sell this week for a seven-figure sum. New Line, Universal (which just stepped out), Paramount, Lionsgate and Screen Gems are all in the mix.”

UPDATE: New Line has won the bidding war.

In Train to Busan, an exceptional horror film that made a killing in South Korea:

“While a zombie virus breaks out in South Korea, passengers struggle to survive on the train from Seoul to Busan.”

At this time, a director is not yet attached.

Writer in the horror community since 2008. Owns Eli Roth's prop corpse from Piranha 3D. Has three awesome cats. Still plays with toys.
