Filmmaker Bong Joon Ho's upcoming feature film has added Hollywood actors Toni Collette, Mark Ruffalo, and Naomi Ackie to the cast. The actors will star alongside the previously announced Robert Pattinson in the Warner Bros. feature.

Joon Ho will write, direct and produce the film, which is based on Edward Ashton's Mickey7 novel. Published in February by Macmillan's imprint St Martin, the story follows the titular Mickey7, an expendable: a disposable employee on a human expedition sent to colonize the ice world Niflheim. Whenever there’s a mission that’s too dangerous—even suicidal—the crew turns to Mickey. After one iteration dies, a new body is regenerated with most of his memories intact. After six deaths, Mickey7 understands the terms of his deal…and why it was the only colonial position unfilled when he took it.

 

Bong will produce under his production company Offscreen, alongside Kate Street Picture Company’s Dooho Choi and Plan B’s Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner.

The yet-untitled film is Joon Ho's first since his 2019 Korean hit Parasite. At the 92nd Academy Awards, the film became the first non-English language to win the Oscars for Best Picture, Director, and Original Screenplay, along with the International Feature Film award

The project is also Warner Bros.' second collaboration with Joon Ho following the limited series based on Parasite that is currently in development at HBO.
