South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho has finally finished the script for another film. A year after Oscar Vijay Parasite, We will soon be able to find his successor.
Le 21 mai 2019, Parasite Was presented at the Cannes Film Festival. The screening marked the film’s directorial debut of glory: South Korean Bong Joon-ho. For 9 months he toured festivals to present his film and won as many awards as possible.
Because yes, as a reminder, Parasite Palme d’Or won at Cannes, a Golden Globe, a Screen Actors Guild Award and two BAFTAs. Most importantly, Parasite was nominated for 5 Oscars and won 4.. The film became the first non-English film to win an Oscar for Best Picture.
Two new projects
After this emotional period, Bong struggles to get back to work. Bong told The Atlantic in March 2020, “Now that I finally have time, I’m trying to work again, but I’m very tired mentally and physically.”
At that time, the filmmaker was working on two projects at the same time. One in Korean and one in English. During an interview for Variety held last November, Bong announced that his next films would be his previous productions such as Parasite And Mother.
The Korean film is set in Seoul and has elements of horror and action. It is difficult to define the genre of my films. The English Project is a play based on an actual incident that took place in 2016. Of course, I won’t know for sure until the script is over, but half of the film is going to be in the UK and the other half in the United States.
“A script completed last week”
Since this interview, everything has been going on for Bong Joon-ho, but during a discussion for the podcast Director’s cut From IndieWire, the director / screenwriter gave information about the progress of his projects. “I feel that I am putting my mind in writing both these scripts. But I finished a job last week. We do not know which project it belongs to.
