Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander, real-life husband and wife, will be reuniting onscreen for the second time in director Na Hong-Jin’s Korean thriller movie “Hope”.

Emmy-nominated Korean actress and model Hoyeon, who made waves with Netflix’s Squid Game, is set to make her feature debut in the upcoming project.

This is the first project from acclaimed Korean director Na since the 2016 hit “The Wailing”, and it’ll mark Hoyeon’s first starring role in a Korean project since she made her screen debut in “Squid Game”.

The largely Korean-language movie will follow the residents of Hopo Port, where a mysterious discovery is made on the outskirts of the remote harbor town. Before long, the residents find themselves in a desperate fight for survival against something they have never encountered before. Hoyeon will play a policewoman.

Additional casting and pre-production are underway for a shoot later this year in Korea.

While the movie will be in Korean, Fassbender and Vikander will speak their lines in English. They had wished to take part after being impressed by the director’s previous work.

“Hope” marks the second time they’ve appeared together in the same movie after 2016’s ‘The Light Between Oceans.’

Korean producer-distributor Plus M Entertainment, owned by multiplex chain Megabox, is behind the project after recently inking a financing and distribution deal with Na, also known for Korean movies “The Chaser” and “The Yellow Sea”.

Cinematographer Hong Kyung-pyo, known for his work on Parasite and Burning, is also on board, marking his second collaboration with Na after “The Wailing”.

Pic will be produced under Na’s production banner Forged Films. Plus M is handling international sales and UTA Independent Film Group and Plus M are handling North America.
