Zombie Film ‘The Last Train To New York’ Loses Release Date

by Thomas Tuna

“Ladies and gentlemen…this train is being delayed.”

The Last Train to New York–the English-language remake of the 2016 South Korean zombie hit Train to Busan–has been dropped from the Warner Bros. release schedule, according to a report on collider.com.

The remake had been slated for an Apr. 21, 2023 debut–as reported here in Horror News Network late last year–but those plans have now been scrapped. No reason for the change was offered, and there was no indication if release plans have simply been moved back or canceled–although the latter course is unlikely.

The good news is that the film is in the hands of some horror heavyweights–with director Timo Tjahjanto (May the Devil Take You), screenwriter Gary Dauberman (Annabelle) and producer James Wan (The Conjuring, Saw and Insidious) all on board.

The original Train to Busan–directed by Yeon Sang-ho from a screenplay by Park Joo-suk–takes place primarily on a high-speed train from Seoul to Busan during a horrifying zombie apocalypse that threatens the entire country.

The film–which gave birth to the 2020 sequel Peninsula–was a box office sensation, raking in $98.5 million on a budget of just $8.5 million.
