One of the more successful zombie films to be released in modern times has been the Korean movie Train to Busan. The South Korean horror film was released in 2016, and became quite a massive success. It even spawned a sequel which was released last year, titled Peninsula, and it’s since been revealed that the film will spawn a remake in North America as well. Now it seems that the Train to Busan remake could actually be titled Last Train to New York.
This news was revealed via Deadline, where they were discussing a remake from the same director, Timo Tjahjanto, titled Under Siege. As such, there aren’t many other new details given about Last Train to New York aside from the potential new title.
As noted by Deadline:
“Tjahjanto is currently attached to direct the New Line remake of Korean hit Train to Busan, which we hear could be titled Last Train to New York.”
Unfortunately, as noted above, details aside from this are scarce. Nevertheless, with quite an exciting crew attached to bring the project to life, we can expect some new developments in the near future. As such, fans can stay tuned to ScreenGeek for updates on the project as we have them. Until then, at least we can still enjoy the original Train to Busan and its recent standalone sequel Peninsula.
Timo Tjahjanto, who directed the film May the Devil Take You and the segment “Safe Haven” from V/H/S/2 will be directing the film. Gary Dauberman adapted the screenplay based on the original Train to Busan film.
The upcoming horror film will be produced by Atomic Monster’s James Wan and Michael Clear. Gaumont’s Nicolas Atlan and Terry Kalagian are also attached to the project as producers. The project’s executive producers include Judson Scott, Sidonie Dumas, Christophe Riandee, and Johanna Byer.
Sang-Ho Yeon directed the original Train to Busan film, which originally had its release at the Cannes Film Festival in 2016.
