Snow Piercer is fast becoming a movie to keep an eye out for. At the weekend it was revealed Chris Evans had signed on to star in Joon-ho Bong’s English-language debut. Now Variety reports that the cast is about to get a jolt of excitement, with Tilda Swinton and Jamie Bell are in talks to join the movie.
The film is set in a world of ice and snow, and follows a group of people who get stuck on a train and can’t find a way to co-exist harmoniously. Unfortunately we don’t have character details, but it’s difficult to imagine Swinton, Bell and Evans won’t spark off one another whatever they’re saying.
Joon-ho Bong, who’s best known for his Korean movie The Mother and The Host, will direct from his own screenplay, with Chan-wook Park (Oldboy) producing.
