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.
