Oscar winner Bong Joon-ho (Parasite) and studio Warner Bros. began work on the adaptation of Edward Ashton’s fantasy novel Mickey 7. But the Korean director’s film is titled “Mickey 17“. The main roles are performed by Robert Pattinson, Steven Yeun, Naomi Ackie, Toni Collette, Mark Ruffalo. The release of the movie is scheduled for March 29, 2024.
Along with the news, a short teaser appeared:
In the book, Mickey is a clone who is used for dangerous work. If one dies, another is simply made — Mickey 1, 2, 3, and so on.
In the book, Mickey 7 is thought to be dead, but he comes back and sees the next Mickey, and this leads to not-so-positive consequences. It is not yet known if this is the official plot of the film.
