"We’re currently researching what social issues the public is interested in and what kind of individual they are curious to know more about,” Ryoo told reporters.
The high-flying “Veteran” portrayed a seasoned investigator’s struggle and cathartic victory in uncovering criminal acts of a corrupt corporate heir.
Kang Hye-jeong, CEO of Filmmaker R&K, said it would take two to three years to make the sequel. “We’re brainstorming on various aspects to find a bigger villain than Jo Tae-oh,” she said, referring to the corrupt millionaire character played by actor Yoo Ah-in.
Actor Hwang Jung-min, who played the protagonist in the film, said that “the outline (for sequel) has not been set yet, but I think I would be in it.”
Hwang, a fan of the “Alien” franchise, explored a possibility that “Veteran” would transform into a strong franchise here. “The reason I want to do this ‘Veteran’ series is that those who watch the film will age together. That’s fun,” Hwang said.
