'Mickey7': Bong Joon-ho ropes in Robert Pattinson, fans say 'another best picture winner'
‘Parasite’ was one of the biggest international films of 2019. It went viral for all the right reasons and was even acknowledged by industry experts as it swept the award season at all of the major award shows like the Oscars, BAFTA, SAG, Blue Dragon, Cannes, Golden Globes, you name it. But the genius behind it, Korean director Bong Joon-ho is no stranger to Hollywood. Previously, he had worked on the Chris Evans-starrer ‘Snowpiercer’ and ‘Okja’ along with globally popular Korean dark and horror films ‘Mother’ and ‘The Host’. And now he has roped in Robert Pattinson.
In early 2022, there were rumors that Hollywood’s current favorite, Robert Pattinson had been roped in for Bong Joon-ho’s next film, 'Mickey7'. It would be the Korean director’s first directorial project in two years following the success of ‘Parasite’ and expectations are soaring. Well, on February 18, we have got confirmation. Pattinson, who is currently promoting his latest flick, ‘The Batman’ in which he plays the DC superhero was interviewed by the Korean press for its release in South Korea.
