The movie Space Sweepers, starring Song Joong Ki and Kim Tae Ri, is unlikely to be released in this summer. Due to the spread of coronavirus, the release of the movie has been postponed to fall.
Space Sweepers finished filming last year and started working on post-production. However, Merry Christmas, the investment distribution company, is reportedly reconsidering its release date. Originally, it was supposed to get released this summer, but it has now been delayed to the second half of this year, most likely around fall. Some predicted that it will be released during the Chuseok season (Korean Thanksgiving Holidays), but this, too, is not confirmed.
Space Sweepers, set in 2092, follows the crew of a space junk collector ship called The Victory. When they discover a humanoid robot named Dorothy that’s known to be a weapon of mass destruction, they get involved in a risky business deal.
Starring Song Joong Ki, Kim Tae Ri, Jin Sun Kyu, and Yoo Hae Jin, Space Sweepers was directed by Cho Sung Hee, best known for A Werewolf Boy and Phantom Detective.
