Tony Colette, Mark Ruffalo and Noami Aki join the new film Pon Joon Ho | Movies
Tony Colette, Mark Ruffalo and Naomi Aki have joined the cast of the new film Pon Joon Ho.
The trio will join Robert Pattinson in the Oscar-winning director after the famous “Parasite”.
The untitled film is based on Edward Ashton’s novel “Mickey 7,” and Bong will write screenplays, directors and producers for his offscreen production company.
Although the film will be inspired by the novel, insiders say Bong’s past experience with film adaptations may mean that its version may be slightly different from the novel.
The story is about Mickey7 – a one-time employee of a human expedition sent to colonize the icy world of Niflheim. Whenever there is too dangerous a mission – even a suicide – the crew turns to Mickey.
Once one iteration dies, a new body is regenerated while preserving most of its memories. After six deaths, Mickey7 understands the terms of his deal and why it was the only colonial post vacant when he took it.
Meanwhile, Mark is also going to star in The Poor.
The 54-year-old actor will star with Emma Stone in the film “Favorite” by George Lantimas.
The project is a reinterpretation of the classic horror novel by Mary Shelley “Frankenstein” and is based on the novel by Scottish writer Alauder Gray.
According to Collider, the story was described as both a “hilarious political allegory” and a “release of Victorian literature” and a “duel that makes you think between men’s desires and women’s independence.”
Emma will play the role of Bella Baxter, who is described as “an unstable, overly sexy, emancipated woman and a Frankenstein woman.”
When she drowns to run away from her angry husband (played by Rufal), Bella’s brain is replaced by the brain of her future child.
