According to information from the Yonhap portal, director Bong Joon-ho and photographer Hong Kyung-pyo decided to release a new version of the film with the intention of emphasizing more on the details of the scenes and causing greater cruelty than the first.
Although it does not feature new scenes, this black and white version will allow fans to appreciate the poverty of the family on a much more grotesque level, as well as with the mansion of the wealthy, where the space will be more expanded. Clean and safe, that was his idea from the beginning.
The film will be released in late April, it was planned to be released in early March or February, but due to the coronavirus its release was postponed.
A spin-off series is also planned to be released through the HBO platform, but there is no release date or cast information yet, the plot would revolve around the lives of each of the characters before the tragedy happens.
The Oscar winning #Parasite will have a UK premiere of its black and white version at @glasgowfilmfest This new version of Parasite was made before the colour version and will be screening on Thursday 5 March.
