Husband and wife duo Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander are set to share the screen space in the upcoming film Hope, a thriller helmed by Na Hong-Jin.
While the details of the film are kept under wraps, the film will be set against the backdrop of harbour town Hopo Port who has to fight against a mysterious discovery for their survival. Despite Hope to be in Korean, the actors will have their dialogues in English. Backed by Forged films and distributed by M Entertainment, the film will be shot by cinematographer Hong Kyung-pyo who earlier worked in critically acclaimed Parasite.
"Director Na’s new project Hope is not only a high-quality film but an enthusiastic project that has the potential to expand its IP to various content distribution channels. Above all, we’ve decided to invest in this project because we have the utmost trust in director Na’s creative vision. Plus M will collaborate and support Hope to make it a global success," the makers were quoted as per Collider.
