Timo Tjahjanto, who directed May the Devil Take You, as well as the excellent V/H/S/2 segment “Safe Haven,” has been tapped to direct a remake of South Korean zombie film Train to Busan for New Line Cinema.
The original Train to Busan, which was directed by Sang-ho Yeon, saw passengers struggling to survive on the train from Seoul to Busan as a zombie virus swept South Korea. The remake is being produced by James Wan’s Atomic Monster.
Gary Dauberman (It, Swamp Thing) is adapting the screenplay and will produce alongside Atomic Monster’s Michael Clear and Gaumont’s Nicolas Atlan and Terry Kalagian. Executive producers on the project include Judson Scott, Sidonie Dumas, Christophe Riandee, and Johanna Byer.
