Little is currently known about the cast of the movie or if Park Joo-suk is returning to the script for the movie titled Peninsula, but the blurb says:
"The movie will revisit the same zombie virus that was seen in the original movie, but this time the focus will be expanded to the entire Korean peninsula."
The distribution company allegedly set a release date in its home country to a release date on August 12, 2020, while no plan has currently been set for its international release.
Train to Busan was directed by Sang-ho and followed the story of a workaholic businessman and father accompanying his doe-eyed daughter on the titular train ride to see her mother while a malevolent virus explodes, transforming the population in ravenous vampires with milk eyes. When one of these bloodsucking zombies gets on the train, hell is unleashed and the father must join a group of survivors to fight the dead and protect his son.
