Things got a little scary here and there because of budget issues, but Screen Daily reports that Bong Joon-ho (The Host) has wrapped shooting what looks to be Korea’s most expensive film to date, Snow Piercer. Read on for the latest details.

According to investor/distributor CJ E&M, the shoot wrapped over the weekend in Prague, and Bong will finish post-production in Korea. They aim to release the sci-fi thriller next year, although specific dates are still in the works. Budgeted at roughly $39.2m (KW45bn), Snow Piercer will be Korea’s most expensive film by far. Kang Je-gyu’s war movie My Way currently holds the record with a $24.5m (KW28bn) budget. Based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige, the film is about the microcosm of human society surviving on a train that goes around in a snow-covered, post-apocalyptic world.

The film was shot entirely on location in the Czech Republic, except for a day’s shoot in Austria for some scenery. Park Chan-wook is producing with his company Moho Film. Snow Piercer features a multi-national cast with Captain America star Chris Evans in the lead. He is joined by Song Kang-ho, who previously worked with Bong on The Host, John Hurt, Ed Harris, Tilda Swinton, Octavia Spencer, Jamie Bell, and Ewen Bremner.
