Lily Collins is starring in an original Netflix movie titled "Okja". She will share screen with Jake Gyllenhaal, Tilda Swinton and Kelly Macdonald among others.

"Okja" is a monster movie to be directed by "Snowpiercer" helmer Bong Joon-ho. The director has said the title refers to a bulky animal with a mild and kind spirit who strikes up a warm friendship with a young Korean girl. Together, they set out on a bizarre journey through a crazy world.

According to The Wrap, Collins will play an anarchist named Red who's the only female member of the higher-ranked ALF members.

Production is scheduled to start in the coming months in both Korea and U.S., and debut on the streaming giant in the first half of 2017. Netflix, Lewis Pictures and Brad Pitt's company Plan B Entertainment are producing. Netflix reportedly has given Joon-ho complete freedom in terms of budget.

The project initially had Bill Nighy on the list but he dropped out, The Wrap said. Meanwhile, Paul Dano may also star, pending his schedule.
