All aboard! The next zombie train will leave…
The 2016 South Korean zombie-filled sensation Train to Busan is getting an English-language remake–as reported here in Horror News Network last month–and this week, New Line Cinema revealed the official title and debut date.
The new film, according to Deadline, will be titled The Last Train to New York (which can only spell trouble for the already-bedeviled Metropolitan Transportation Authority) and will hit theaters Apr. 21, 2023.
The new thriller–distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures–will be directed by Timo Tjahjanto (May the Devil Take You) from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman (Annabelle). James Wan (of Saw and The Conjuring fame) will wear the producer’s hat.
The original Train to Busan–directed by Yeon Sang-ho from a screenplay by Park Joo-suk–takes place mainly on a high-speed train from Seoul to Busan during a horrifying zombie apocalypse that threatens the country.
The movie–which spawned the 2020 sequel Peninsula–was a box office smash, earning $98.5 million on an $8.5-million budget.
