The director of the upcoming remake of Train to Busan has responded to a recent backlash, saying that he hopes his film will be a “new beginning” for South Korea.
The train to busan american remake release date is a recent news story that has been making headlines. Director Yeon Sang-ho has responded to the backlash from fans of the original film.
The rumor that New Line Cinema is creating an English-language adaptation of the blockbuster South Korean zombie film Train to Busan went viral over the weekend. Despite the fact that the story was six months old at the time, it rapidly circulated online, eliciting strong responses and widespread concerns about American studios duplicating every excellent foreign horror picture rather than creating anything new. The new film, which has yet to be verified to take place in America (due to the country’s lack of actual high-speed rail transportation), does have a director attached, and filmmaker Timo Tjahjanto, to his credit, has taken the internet’s anger in stride.
He jokingly commented on Twitter, “When your @ is suddenly filled up & it’s more about Train to Busan remake.” “‘Timo, we need to soar above & above everyone’s expectations, much like previous outstanding remakes like The Ring or Dawn of the Dead remake,’ says James (Wan). Who am I to fail my boss? I felt compelled to mention that James has been a hero of mine since my undergraduate days. His ascent from SAW inspired a lot of us SEA genre doofus as a South East Asian child from a traditional middle class household that doesn’t exactly support creative pursuits (i.e. blowing up heads, spreading fake blood).” (sic)
In response to a Twitter user who referred to the prospective remake as “horrible,” “Tjahjanto responded with a humorous retort: “If someone isn’t loathing your profession someplace in a dark murky part of the cosmos, implies you aren’t reaching high enough.” – Worf, Mogh’s son”

As previously stated, Tjahjanto will helm the new picture, which will be produced by James Wan, the director of The Conjuring and Saw. Tjahjanto’s past credits include Netflix’s The Night Comes for Us, Shudder’s May the Devil Take You Too, the V/H/S 2 section “Safe Haven,” and another scene for the forthcoming VHS ’94, among others.
Gary Dauberman, who wrote the two Stephen King’s IT films among other things, was originally recruited to adapt the screenplay. The original Train to Busan recounts the tale of survivors fleeing a deadly zombie epidemic aboard a high-speed train to a South Korean metropolis, with twists and turns as they battle the infected and attempt to make stops on the rail lines.
In a recent interview, Dauberman said to SlashFilm that they’d come up with a “strong rationale” to remake the film in America. I won’t go into detail about it, but it’s one of those movies that’s so f-ing amazing and so well-made that you don’t want to do anything less than it. I believe we’re on the right track. There seems to be a rationale to create the American version without compromising the original experience.”
