Director Bong Joon-ho & Robert Pattinson Teaming Up for Sci-Fi Movie!

Oscar winning Parasite director Bong Joon-ho seems to have finally chosen his next project nearly two years after his decorated run at the 2020 Oscars!

The director is in talks to write and direct a new movie based on Edward Ashton’s upcoming novel “Mickey7″ (due out in February 2022). Even more interesting is Robert Pattinson is in talks to star in the film, Deadline reports.

MacMillan Publishers has the following synopsis for the book: Dying isn’t any fun…but at least it’s a living. Mickey7 is an Expendable: a disposable employee on a human expedition sent to colonize the ice world Niflheim. Whenever there’s a mission that’s too dangerous—even suicidal—the crew turns to Mickey. After one iteration dies, a new body is regenerated with most of his memories intact. After six deaths, Mickey7 understands the terms of his deal…and why it was the only colonial position unfilled when he took it. On a fairly routine scouting mission, Mickey7 goes missing and is presumed dead. By the time he returns to the colony base, surprisingly helped back by native life, Mickey7’s fate has been sealed. There’s a new clone, Mickey8, reporting for Expendable duties. The idea of duplicate Expendables is universally loathed, and if caught, they will likely be thrown into the recycler for protein. Mickey7 must keep his double a secret from the rest of the colony. Meanwhile, life on Niflheim is getting worse. The atmosphere is unsuitable for humans, food is in short supply, and terraforming is going poorly. The native species are growing curious about their new neighbors, and that curiosity has Commander Marshall very afraid. Ultimately, the survival of both lifeforms will come down to Mickey7. That is, if he can just keep from dying for good.

This is the first project Robert is signing on for since wrapping The Batman.
