A U.S remake of the popular South Korean zombie blockbuster Train to Busan by New Line Cinema has been confirmed, and fans aren’t too happy about it.

The original Train to Busan film was directed by Yeon Sang-Ho and premiered at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. The movie is centered around a father and his daughter who are stuck on a high-speed train from Seoul to Busan amidst a zombie apocalypse. The film was a massive hit internationally, and a sequel, Train to Busan: Peninsula was released in 2020.

Timo Tjahjanto, the filmmaker for Netflix‘s The Night Comes for Us and 2016 award-winning thriller Headshot will direct the remake with production assistance from James Wan and screenplay from Gary Dauberman. Wan and Dauberman have worked with New Line in the past to produce The Conjuring series, Annabelle, and The Nun.

A release date has yet to be revealed. In the meantime, watch the Twitter conversations unfold below.
