"The Host" was a Korean box office blockbuster directed by Bong Joon-ho and, while its Korean sequel is in the works, a Chinese sequel is also in its early stages.

Last week, Chungeorahm Films met with director Ning Hao, his production company Stone Man Films, and producer Daniel Yu. They signed an agreement stating a joint production of the Chinese sequel to "The Host".

Director Ning Hao has introduced the unique stories of Chinese films such as "Scent", "Mongolian Ping Pong", and "Crazy Stone". "Crazy Stone" was the closing film for the 2006 Pusan International Film Festival.

Ning is currently working on the script. Chungeorahm Films and Stone Man Films are planning to begin filming early next year, and hope to release the Chinese sequel by late 2009.

"We are taking the lead in the production and filming of the Chinese sequel to "The Host"", said a Chungeorahm representative. "This is a much more significant process than simply selling remake copyrights or exporting our film overseas".

Director Bong Joon-ho's original "The Host", opened in theaters across China last year in March under the title, "The Hangang Monster". The screenplay for the Korean sequel to "The Host" is being written by celebrated graphic novelist, Kang Full. The cast has yet to be determined.
