Warner Bros. has delayed the Train to Busan remake to an unknown date
According to Deadline, Warner Bros. has withdrawn the Train to Busan remake from its release plan, delaying it to an unknown date. The original release date for the remake of the Korean zombie film, The Last Train to New York, was set for April 21st, 2023. Salem’s Lot, a classic novel by Stephen King, will now be adapted on the previously announced revised date, which was moved from this September to this April.
Timo Tjahjanto (V/H/S/94) will helm the American adaptation of the well-liked Korean movie, while Gary Dauberman (Annabelle Comes Home) will write the narrative. Both the movie and Dauberman’s interpretation of Salem’s Lot, which he will write and direct, will be produced by James Wan. Removing the date for the Train to Busan remake made sense as there weren’t any other specifics other than the New York location. The undead thrill ride’s cast has not yet been revealed.
2016 saw the global success of Train to Busan. The ex-wife of businessman Seok-woo (Gong Yoo), Soo-an (Su-an Kim), was visited by her daughter. On their journey from Seoul to Busan, there is a zombie outbreak, and the zombies board their train. The two, along with other survivors, fight for their lives in the hope of reaching a location free of the dead. After this popularity, America decided to produce its own version of the movie.
Sang-ho Yeon, who also served as the first film’s writer and director, later produced a follow-up called Peninsula, which was released in 2020. The 2016 film’s sequel did not receive the same positive reviews from reviewers or viewers. Fans will have a spectrum of qualities to compare the American variation to with the original and its action-packed sequel thanks to that established standard.
The Last Train to New York, a remake of Train to Busan, may be able to please viewers because it was created by two horror directors. Tjahjanto is renowned for his work on May the Devil Take You, V/H/S/94, and V/H/S 2. The Nun, Annabelle Comes Home, and It Chapters One and Two were all written by Dauberman.
