Okja #1: Because it's about a friendship between a girl and animal who set out on a bizarre journey through a crazy world. (Spoilers Possible)

Jake Gyllenhaal To Star In Bong Joon-ho’s ‘Okja’ On Netflix

Jake Gyllenhaal, Tilda Swinton, Paul Dano and Bill Nighy have been cast in the film by 'Snowpiercer' director Bong Joon Ho.

The film is one of the first features in Asia to be backed by the streaming firm, which is in the process of launching services across the region. Netflix is expected to launch in Korea in 2016.

“It really is a fantastic opportunity for me as a filmmaker,” Bong said in a statement. “For Okja, I needed a bigger budget than I had for Snowpiercer and also complete creative freedom. Netflix offered me the two conditions that are difficult to have in hand simultaneously,” he said.

According to Okja SPC, Brad Pitt's Plan B Entertainment has also come aboard to co-produce the film. The company headed by Pitt was behind World War Z and 12 Years a Slave, as well as War Machine. Netflix invested in the latter.

Meanwhile, Tilda Swinton, who starred in Snowpiercer, is set to have a role in Okja. Other cast members include Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano and Bill Nighy.

Gyllenhaal will play a zoologist and Dano an activist looking to shut the corporation down. If cast, Esposito — who, aside from Breaking Bad, recently featured in The Jungle Book and Money Monster — will play Swinton’s right-hand man.

Okja tracks her struggle to stop a multinational corporation from kidnapping the titular monster, who just so happens to be her best friend — and a genetically manufactured pig.

It's a story about the friendship between a girl and an animal named Okja. Production is slated to begin in Korea and New York in late 2016 for a 2017 release.
future titles:
Because this isn't just any monster movie.
Because it's gorgeous, insane, and moving!
Because it’s really this children-adults movie.

Bong Joon-ho’s Okja Begins Filming with Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal & Paul Dano

Netflix announced that principal photography began yesterday on its feature film Okja in Seoul, South Korea. From director Bong Joon-ho (Snowpiercer, The Host, Mother), Okja is produced by Plan B, Lewis Pictures and Kate Street Picture Company, and stars Tilda Swinton (Hail, Caesar!, Moonrise Kingdom), Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler, Everest) and Paul Dano (Love & Mercy, 12 Years a Slave) in a bold, global adventure.

“With ‘Okja’ I want to show the beauty that can exist between man and animal, and also the horror between them,” said Director Bong.

Okja was written by Bong and Jon Ronson (Frank) and follows Mija, a young girl who must risk everything to prevent a powerful, multi-national company from kidnapping her best friend – a massive animal named ‘Okja.’ Mija will be played by Seohyun An.

Joining the cast are acclaimed actors from around the world, including Devon Bostick (“The 100”), Lily Collins (To The Bone), Byun Heebong (The Host), Shirley Henderson (Anna Karenina), Daniel Henshall (The Babadook), Yoon Je Moon (Mother), Choi Wooshik (Set Me Free) and Steven Yeun (“The Walking Dead”). Okja will be shot in South Korea, Canada and the US, in English and Korean.

Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Lewis Taewan Kim, Dooho Choi, Woo-sik Seo and Bong Joon-ho are producers on the film. Okja is a Plan B, Lewis Pictures and Kate Street Picture Company production.

Okja will premiere globally on Netflix in 2017 and will also have a limited day and date theatrical release in the US. Netflix is also looking for theatrical partners for a day and date release in select international territories, including Korea.
