Snowpiercer TV Series In The Works


The 2013 Korean feature film, Snowpiercer, is being adapted into a TV series now after originally being adapted from a graphic novel.

The series will be written by Sarah Connor Chronicles and War of the Worlds writer, Josh Friedman, for Tomorrow Studios, which has optioned the rights to the film. Friedman's TV credits include Crossbones and a comic book adaptation with Locke & Key, which stalled as a pilot at Fox.

The potential series is based on the 2013 film which starred the Marvel Universe's Captain America, Chris Evans, and was directed by Bong Joon Ho. It took place in a post-apocalyptic Ice Age where the only remaining human life on the planet survives aboard a train which travels the globe.

Bong and Snowpiercer co-producer, Dooho Choi, and producer, Chan-wook Park, are attached to executive produce the series, alongside Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements.
