‘Squid Game’ Director's Next is KLLING OLD PEOPLE CLUB

By John Connor [04.04.22]


“Squid Game” director Hwang Dong-hyuk is developing a feature film called “Killing Old People Club,” which he says is inspired by a novel by Umberto Eco (author of "The Name of the Rose").

Speaking during a session at MipTV Dong-hyuk revealed he has already penned a 25-page treatment about the project which will surely be “another controversial film,” he said.


“It will be more violent than ‘Squid Game,'” teased Dong-hyuk, adding that he might have to hide from old people after the film comes out. The project has the working title “K.O. Club.”


The critically acclaimed creator said he will now return home to South Korea to write the second season of “Squid Game” and hopes to have the show stream on Netflix by the end of 2024.

    I checked out Umberto Eco, most of his books look pretty boring. But Squid Games ruled so I'm sure a series about killing old people will be entertaining as well
