‘The Host’ director, Bong Joon Ho, has a new Netflix Original monster film on the way, titled ‘Okja’ and the first images have been released via Entertainment Weekly.
A mysterious creature called the Okja is being described by Joon as “a very shy and introverted animal.. It’s a unique animal that we’ve never seen before. ”
The film follows Okja and Mija (Ahn Seo-hyun), a young South Korean girl. Their adventures leads to New York City. “Red (Lily Collins) is part of a group of animal rights activists that figure into the story,” teases Joon-ho, who filmed in the Financial District. “On Wall Street, it’s the heart of capitalism,” the director notes. “On the surface is a story about an animal, but it’s essentially a story about capitalism.”
‘Okja’ will arrive on Netflix sometime this summer. We will let you know when the trailer arrives.
