(Cover) - EN Movies - Tilda Swinton is in talks to join post-apocalyptic thriller Snow Piercer.
The feature is based on the French comic Le Transperceneige created by Jean-Marc Rochette and is South Korean director Bong Joon-ho’s first foray into English language film.
Snow Piercer’s plot follows a group that is traveling by train together in a future ice age.
Variety reports that Chris Evans, the star of last year’s Captain America: The First Avenger, is also poised to join the ensemble.
The specific roles that Tilda and Chris will undertake are currently unknown.
Park Chan-wook, director of the hit 2003 action-thriller Old Boy, will assist Bong with the film’s production.
Production on Snow Piercer is set to begin in March, although a distributor for the film has not yet been acquired.
Bong directed 2006 monster film The Host, which became the highest grossing South Korean film in history.
Tilda, who received a Golden Globe Award nomination this year for her work in We Need to Talk About Kevin, will next be seen in this summer’s Moonrise Kingdom.
Chris is currently filming The Iceman, a feature about real life contract hitman Richard Kuklinski.
