    Oscar-winning director Bong Joon-ho's new Hollywood film is coming in 2024.
    Warner Bros. on Monday made it official with a teaser release announcing that "Mickey 17" will hit theaters on March 29, 2024.
    "Mickey 17" will be Bong's first film in three years since his "Parasite" won Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best International Feature Film at the 2020 Academy Awards. 
    His first project with Warner Bros., it is based on Edward Ashton's 2022 novel "Mickey7," which tells the story of a clone who is sent to colonize the ice world Niflheim.
    Bong's adaptation is expected to deliver a critical message about society as he is known for depicting social metaphors in his films.
    The cast includes Robert Pattinson, who starred in the latest installment in "The Batman" series, Tilda Swinton, who previously worked with Bong in "Snowpiercer" and "Okja," and Mark Ruffalo, who is well known for his role as Hulk in the "Avengers" series.
