A poster for Bong Joon-ho's upcoming film "Okja" was displayed on the Facebook page of the film's producer, Netflix, on Saturday. Its cast includes Korean actress Ahn Seo-hyun and Hollywood stars Tilda Swinton, Paul Dano and Jake Gyllenhaal.
The film follows the story of a little girl living in a mountain village who risks everything to rescue her best friend -- a massive, genetically modified pig named Okja who has been kidnapped by a multinational company.
Bong and the leading cast members will attend a press conference, red carpet event and gala screening of the film at the festival on Friday.
Netflix invested W60 billion in "Okja", which was co-produced by Brad Pitt's Plan B Entertainment (US$1=W1,130).
The film will be given a brief theatrical release here in June.
