Chungeorahm Film, the film production and distribution company of the blockbuster hit ``The Host,'' plans to release a sequel to the film in 2009.

But director Bong Joon-ho, the driving force of the original, will not join the film crew making ``The Host 2'' as he has other plans.

``We'll start making the film from this fall,'' Choi Yong-bae, CEO of Chungeorahm, was quoted as saying by Yonhap News.

South Korean technical staff will make a 10-minute computer graphic (CG) test film this fall.

``We have gathered technical know-how from making `The Host,''' Choi said. The film was made in collaboration with foreign technical staff including some from the United States. ``I think we can use domestic CG technology this time.''

The budget will be about 10 billion won, similar to the previous film, and the same monster will be used.

I loved the first one. I'm not sure a sequel is entirely necessary, but I'll be there.

One of my favorite recent movies. Looking forward to it.

Damn. As much as I love the original, I was kind of hoping they wouldn't do a sequel...especially without the same director, although I will say the writing was tight too...so maybe they retain the writer(s).

As long as it's a new group of people, etc., I'll be more ok with it. I think they completed the first story perfectly.

Awesome movie. Probably one of the scariest movie monsters in recent history.

The sequel will suck balls... This I have no doubt of.

I still haven't seen The Host. It had a limited release here, meaning one to three theatres all the way in downtown/west Vancouver that take too damn long for me to get to.
