The U.S. release of Bong Joon-ho’s stellar Snowpiercer might not have gone as planned, but fortunately, it isn’t keeping the director from lining up majorly ambitious projects.

His next film, a monster movie called Okja, just landed some major backing from Netflix and Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment. The streaming giant has agreed to fund the project, which will star Snowpiercer vet Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal among another international cast, while Plan B will co-produce.

Okja marks the second teaming of Netflix and Plan B, who are collaborating on War Machine from director David Michôd and starring Pitt.

According to Bong, Okja will tell the story of the kind, eponymous monster and the little girl who befriends him.
