Brad Pitt / Bong Joon-ho Join for Netflixs Okja Monster Movie

Brad Pitt via Plan B to co-produce and director Bong Joon-ho are teaming up with Netflix to create a new monster movie titled Okja (2016). Netflix has already dedicated $50 million to make the new film. Okja is a kind-hearted monster who befriends a Korean girl. Jake Gyllenhaal, Tilda Swinton, Bill Nighy, Paul Dano, and Kelly Macdonald are all set to star in the cast. Orka is scheduled to start filming in Korea and the US in late 2016 with the premiere releasing in 2017.

Bong Joon-ho statement:

It really is a fantastic opportunity for me as a filmmaker. For Okja, I needed a bigger budget than I had for Snowpiercer and also complete creative freedom. Netflix offered me the two conditions that are difficult to have in hand simultaneously.
