Train to Busan New York Summary!
In the original Train to Busan, a father and daughter duo in the film travel from Seoul to Busan by train. Unfortunately, a zombie outbreak takes the two and their fellow passengers on a one-way train ride to hell as they are forced to stop zombies within range of a high-speed rail.
Yeon Sang-ho’s upcoming English-language remake of zombie banger “Train to Busan” is gathering momentum. The original 2016 feature concerns a viral undead outbreak in Seoul and an intense battle for survival on a train of unharmed passengers.
It left movie-goers sobbing that it spawned an animated prequel and a standalone follow-up. Now, a foreign translation of the story shows the outbreak surrounding one of the most populous cities in the United States.
The screenplay for the remake is written by Gary Dauberman, who previously wrote Van Productions’ Annabelle, Annabelle: Creation, Annabelle Comes Home (which he also directed), and The Nun.
Van and Michael Clear are producing The Last Train to New York through their company Atomic Monster. Gaumont’s Nicolas Atlan and Terry Kalagian are also producing, as is Coin Operated’s Doberman. Judson Scott, Sidonie Dumas, Christophe Riandi and Johanna Bayer serve as executive producers.
Yeon Sang-ho also created an animated prequel to Train to Busan, called Seoul Station, and followed the film with a sequel released under the title Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula.

What to Expect from the Plot of Train to Busan New York?
Given that the Train to Busan remake is being built for an American audience, it makes sense that the story would shift to New York, one of the few major metropolitan cities with many still running passenger trains.
With the Under Siege reboot still in its early stages of development and the action-horror remake languishing in development hell for five years, it looks like the latter project is still taking priority for Tjazunto and the studios backing it.
As many details on the remake are still largely unknown, it is difficult to speculate whether the final train portion of the title connects to the apocalyptic nature of the film’s story or alludes to the nighttime setting for its events.
