A sequel to the domestic monster movie 'D-War' appears to be in the works sooner than expected.
During a news conference at the Korean Cultural Center in New York, comedian-turned-film director Shim Hyung-rae said he has received a proposal to shoot a sequel very soon, targeting a summer 2009 release date.
Shim said that he is discussing a possible release for D-War in Europe and that preparations will begin Thursday for its opening in Japan.
The sci-fi blockbuster about a legendary Korean serpent earned six-point-six million dollars in the U.S. in its second week of release as of last Friday.
But the number of screens showing the film has slipped by 29 to 2,246, and it has now fallen from eighth to 12th at the box office.
