The Host Sequel Planned For 2009

Chungeorahm Film, the film production and distribution company of the blockbuster hit ``The Host,'' plans to release a sequel to the film in 2009.

But director Bong Joon-ho, the driving force of the original, will not join the film crew making ``The Host 2'' as he has other plans.

``We'll start making the film from this fall,'' Choi Yong-bae, CEO of Chungeorahm, was quoted as saying by Yonhap News.

South Korean technical staff will make a 10-minute computer graphic (CG) test film this fall.

``We have gathered technical know-how from making `The Host,''' Choi said. The film was made in collaboration with foreign technical staff including some from the United States. ``I think we can use domestic CG technology this time.''

The budget will be about 10 billion won, similar to the previous film, and the same monster will be used.
