After gaining worldwide recognition for his 2020 movie Parasite, director Bong Joon Ho has earned the nod of Hollywood A-list stars who want to work with him in a future movie. The director was able to win the Best Picture award at the Oscars making this the first non-English-language film to do so. Joon Ho also won the Academy Award for Best Director.

With all the recognition that he's received, Hollywood already has a big future ahead for the director. And part of those plans is a sci-fi film with Warner Bros. called Mickey 17.

Details about the film's plot are scarce right now but we know that the film is adapted from a book called Mickey 7 written by Edward Ashton.

If the film will follow the story of the novel, we will be taking a look at a character named Mickey Barnes who is actually a clone on board an expedition towards Niflheim. The Expendable clone is just one of the many being used when things are dangerous or difficult.

After going missing for a day, Mickey7 gets replaced by his successor, Mickey8. Since duplicate Expendables are prohibited, the two work together to make sure the colony survives.
