There are many new films coming out, and being created that we are excited for, but this new film is definitely one you should be a little more excited for.
Have you watched Snowpiercer on Netflix? The Snowpiercer is already an amazing film that is currently streaming for all Netflix subscribers, and you must watch it if you have not already. The quality of the film is overall amazing, and the story is spectacular too. The film has a 95% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and an 84% on Metacritic, which is high for any newer film today.
So, after all of the hype about the Snowpiercer, you are probably wondering what we are getting at. Well, the Korean director of the Snowpiercer, Bong Joon-ho, has decided to create a film specifically for Netflix. Bong first was recognized for his outstanding director skills when he directed a film in 2007 that not only received awards, but also a 92% on Rotten Tomatoes! Then he directed the Snowpiercer shortly after, which had a lot of Oscar buzz going around.
After a year, Bong will be working on this new ginormous project, by returning to the monster genre, which is where his fame originally came from. His next project will be a straight-to-Netflix film titled Okja. Netflix has allowed Bong to spread his artistic creativity as they are using the hands-off approach while he creates this new masterpiece.
Okja is already scheduled for filming next year, as many actors has already signed onto it. The film will not be released anytime within the next year, but has plans of releasing in 2017. With a budget of $50 million, we expect to see amazing things from Bong, and cannot wait to hear more about Okja. In the meantime, we can watch Snowpiercer as many times as we would like, because it is still streaming on Netflix!
