South Korea filmmaker Bong Joon-ho is back with the first trailer and poster for Parasite, which NEON will release in North America. The drama marks Bong’s comeback to Korean-language film following Okja and Snowpiercer, and his fourth collaboration with Song Kang-ho (Snowpiercer, The Host, Memories of Murder), who stars in the film.
Parasite marks the fifth collaboration with NEON CEO, Tom Quinn, and director Bong Joon-ho.
Written by Bong, Parasite is a peculiar tale about two families who are worlds apart yet somewhat alike, portraying a striking reality of the world we live in. The film also stars Lee Sun-kyun (A Hard Day, Our Sunhi), Cho Yeo-jeong (Obsessed), Choi Woo-shik (Okja, Train to Busan), Park So-dam (The Priests), and Chang Hyae-jin (Poetry).
Kwak Sin-ae and Jang Young-hwan from Barunson E&A Corp are producing, with CJ Entertainment handling international sales and set to distribute in Korea.
NEON is planning a 2019 theatrical release.
