Move over World War Z, Train to the Busan is about to take over the Zombie movies with US remake. If you are familiar with the hit South Korean zombie action thriller Train to the Busan then you know why it’s getting a US remake.

CelebNMovies247.com reports James Wan is set to produce the Train to Busan US remake, while Dauberman is set to pen the American version of the zombie flick.
The original movie came out in 2016 in South Korea, but the film has been so successful that several studios are looking to invest as it proves to be a box office success with a build in following.
Of course, the zombie film will be getting big names and a big budget for the upcoming Train To Busan US remake.
There are several studios are engaged in a bloody bidding war over the rights to the project, with New Line, Universal, Paramount, Lionsgate and Screen Gems going to bat over the Train to Busan remake. With Wan and Dauberman on board (sorry, the train pun is too good not to use twice), the project is a hot package that will sell for a “seven-figure sum,” according to Deadline.
Director San-ho Yeon’s phenomenal 2016 film manages to produce one of the best zombie movies in the past decade out of a barebones premise.
A man (Gong Yoo), his estranged daughter and other passengers become trapped on a speeding train during a zombie outbreak in South Korea.
