In addition to having a remake on the way, the director of Train to Busan speak on the possibility of making a third installment of the saga. “I think the zombie genre is very traditional but at the same time, depending on how you do it, it can also be completely different. Personally, I have some ideas to get further from the events that happened after ‘Peninsula’. And making a new movie is something I would like to do. However, since I am working on a lot of productions right now, I think I will have to organize everything. Until now I have been someone who had been creating individually. But these days I have been thinking that perhaps I will need to find a system to put in order to carry out all my creative visions ”, answered.
