The Host prequel in the works

Hit monster movie The Host is getting a prequel! Korean comic artist Kang Pool is reportedly penning the screenplay this time around.

The story is set 3 years prior to the events of the original film.

So far, none of the original cast or filmmakers are attached to the prequel.

Details are sketchy but apparently, it is about the excavation of the Cheonggye Stream, an ancient waterway running through Seoul that was recently reclaimed and restored. The flick will feature multiple monsters.

Shooting is scheduled for later this year while the movie is slated for a 2009 release.

What, no original stars or director? Doesn't sound too promising, does it?

This one should get a broader north american release.

The first one was really good even with the bouts of bad acting
