Yeon Sang-ho’s hit zombie thriller, Train To Busan, is getting a sequel, which will be called Peninsula. The film isn’t a direct sequel per se but more of an extension of the universe revealed in the first film. According to a recent interview, the director states the film takes place four years after the original. “It is in the same universe, but it doesn’t continue the story and has different characters.
