    Interesting find: this looks almost like a carbon copy of the designs put through for the Paramount London project.

    This concept art is dated 2020 so it is probably the current design of the first park coming to Inspire Entertainment Resort

    The good news is that construction on phase one of the resort complex (three 5-star luxury hotels, multipurpose venue with 15,000 seats, and casino) are proceeding as scheduled with a planned opening of June 2022. The somewhat bad news is that apparently the Paramount theme park is part of phase two which may not start construction until 2024 so it's going to be a long wait but at least this project as a whole is still active.

    New concept art and details have been released for two theme parks at Inspire Entertainment Resort

    Phase 1B's theme park

    Phase 2's theme park

    The second phase of construction will begin in the second half of 2021, involving 1.3 trillion won in investment to build an indoor theme park by Paramount Pictures. The outdoor theme park will be completed by 2024.
    Paramount Korea, a Paramount Pictures-branded theme park slated to open in 2025 near the Incheon airport, is betting on differentiated contents and scale compared to local players such as Everland and Lotte World, according to the US filmmaker’s top official.

    Paramount Pictures’ first-ever international theme park will span over 404,600-square-meter area in Yeongjongdo, Incheon, with 40 branded attractions and integrated retail, dining and entertainment.

    “(Our strength will synergize with) Korean culture that embraces going to a theme park. We are creating a theme park that is really good for the whole family, providing a holistic experience for both parents and children,” said Ty Granaroli, senior vice president of Paramount Pictures, during a press meeting with Korean journalists in Connecticut on Sunday local time.

    When asked what will differentiate Paramount Korea from existing theme parks Everland and Lotte World, Granaroli said it is the storytelling power that the company has.

    “We are storytellers. We create movies and contents, and have a legacy of storytelling. People love great stories. But I think successful theme parks in the world are mostly based on their intellectual property,” said Granaroli.

    “We will continue to add new stories to our theme park, as we will make more movies in the future,” he added.

    The attractions will be based on the storylines of globally hit movies such as “Mission Impossible” and “Star Trek” spin-offs, and also have Korean culture and storylines, Paramount said.

    “There will be a special show called ‘Dreams of Korea,’ which will include stories and the history of Korea,” said Granaroli, adding that other live entertainment shows including day and night parades will be designed to keep visitors extend duration of visit.

    A number of attractions will be K-pop-themed, where they will be operated along with music and performances, according to Paramount.

    “Every ride (at the K-pop-themed zone) will have K-pop music onboard. This area will be like a K-pop music festival,” said Granaroli, adding that the iconic water roller-coaster which plays K-pop will be called Idol.

    Other major attractions will be derived from scenes from movies including “Mission Impossible,” “Italian Job,” Tomb Raider” and more, with 4D technology, stuntmen’s live performance and racing track experience, Paramount said.

    The US film company said it will revive the Hollywood boulevard at its main gate called Paramount Gate, which will lead to the Paramount Boulevard. Restaurants and cafe streets will offer a Southern California atmosphere.

    Currently under construction, the Inspire Integrated Entertainment Resort in Incheon is aiming for the $1.6 billion-worth first phase opening in 2022.

    A 5-star resort hotel with over 1,250 rooms, suites and villas

    Approximately 204,000 square-feet (19,000㎡) of conference and convention space including the largest hotel ballroom in Incheon/Seoul at 60,460 square-feet (5,617㎡)
    Groundbreaking is scheduled for May 2019 and official opening planned for 2022
    Inspire’s phase 1B includes the over 99-acre (404,000m2) Paramount Picture-branded theme park with connecting entertainment and retail village scheduled to open in 2025.

  6. Seems that the Paramount Korean theme park project is coming back.

    Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment's multibillion-dollar, multi-phase integrated entertainment resort (IER) currently in development in South Korea, Inspire Integrated Entertainment Resort (Inspire), and Paramount Pictures Corporation (Paramount) announce a strategic partnership to incorporate a Paramount Pictures-branded theme park as part of Northeast Asia's largest IER expansion underway in the Incheon International Airport's (IIAC) IBC-III Region.

    "We are proud to have Paramount Pictures join us as a strategic partner in the development of our innovative integrated entertainment resort concept," said Kevin Brown, Chairman of the Mohegan Tribe and MGE Management Board. "With Paramount alongside as we answer the demand of today's consumers, the Inspire IER model not only displays our commitment to trend-setting in this industry but also demonstrates the Mohegan Tribe's commitment to growing South Korea's travel, tourism and workforce development goals, while securing the generational sustainability of the Mohegan Tribe."

    Kevin Suh, EVP Themed Entertainment for Paramount says, "Paramount is proud to announce Korea as one of the first locations for a world-class Paramount branded theme park. Paramount looks forward to its partnership with Inspire and to be part of one of the world's premiere entertainment destinations at Inspire."

    "We are pleased to have the major global force in entertainment, Paramount, on our impressive and growing list of strategic partners for Project Inspire," said Mario Kontomerkos, Chief Executive Officer for Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment. "Aligning with highly sought after and recognized brands with mutual goals is a key component to the creation of the world's first true integrated entertainment resort."

  7. Yes it is. Fox World Korea is considering moving on the site now:
