Following the success of the Academy Award-winning dark comedy thriller Parasite, director Bong Joon Ho is now back with a dystopian thriller titled, Mickey 17, based on the book Mickey7 by Edward Ashton. The story follows an “expendable” employee named Mickey Barnes, played by Robert Pattinson in the film, who’s sent on a mission to colonize the ice planet of Niflheim. After each failed mission, a new body is brought to life with most of the memories from past journeys kept intact. With exact plot details yet to be revealed, it’s unclear how closely the movie will echo the events of the book, though the change in name hints at a fair amount of variation.

Produced by Plan B Entertainment and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, the film will see the return of composer Jung Jae-il from Parasite. Joining Pattinson on the cast are Mark Ruffalo, Naomi Ackie, Steven Yuen, and Toni Collette.

The movie is set to hit theaters on March 29, 2024. Take a look at the teaser above.
