it’s been since 2019 Bong Joon Ho another film unleashed on the public. Then he walked out Parasite, which would become an unexpected hit at the Oscars a year later. The film went on to receive six nominations for the Oscars and managed to buy back four of them. So won Parasite including the Oscar for Best Picture and Bong Joon-ho for Best Director and Best Original Screenplay.
After this success and the turmoil that accompanied it, the South Korean director took the time to work on some new projects. The most concrete of them is the film mickey 17. Bong Jung-ho knew even before that Robert Pattinson tied for the lead role.
mickey 17 is based on the book Mickey7 by author Edward Ashton which dates from early 2022. This science fiction novel revolves around Mickey7, a so-called Expendable. They are expendable employees who travel with a human expedition with the goal of colonizing the ice world of Niflheim. During this expedition, the crew calls on Mickey for all the dangerous or even suicidal missions. If he dies in the process, a new body is regenerated with almost all memories intact. After six deaths, however, Mickey7 begins to understand more and more how everything works.
Because Warner Bros. Images film rights Mickey7 already purchased before the publication of the novel, there is a chance that the story of mickey 17 will differ slightly from the book. To find out how the next Bong Joon-ho film will unfold, we will have to wait a bit, because mickey 17 isn’t due out in the US until March 29, 2024. The film will likely hit theaters here Wednesday, March 27, 2024.
