Sure, “Okja” may involve a creature of some kind, one that a little girl is aiming to protect from the clutches of a multi-national corporation, but the movie has deeper concerns on its mind, according to director Bong Joon-Ho. And those themes will connect to a character named Red, played by Lily Collins.
“Red is part of a group of animal rights activists that figure into the story,” the filmmaker told EW. “On Wall Street, it’s the heart of capitalism. On the surface is a story about an animal, but it’s essentially a story about capitalism.”
Well, we’re already sold on this movie that features Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano, Giancarlo Esposito, and more among the cast. No firm release date yet, but the Netflix produced film will arrive in 2017. Check out the new images below, which include a story board for an action sequence.
