Snowpiercer, the 2013 film about a post-apocalyptic world in which the only survivors live on a globe-trotting train, could soon become a small-screen series, TVLine has confirmed.
Marty Adelstein’s Tomorrow Studios has optioned the rights to the movie, with Josh Friedman (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Crossbones) set to write the script and executive-produce. Additional EPs include Becky Clements, the film’s writer-director Bong Joon Ho and producer Chan-wook Park.
“We are very excited to be working with Josh on this incredible story,” Adelstein says. “As such a prolific and innovative writer he is the ideal person to create a massive new world in this adaptation. This is an expansive, high-concept project and we are thrilled to be a part of reimagining it for television.”
Snowpiercer, Ho’s first English-language endeavor, starred Chris Evans and Tilda Swinton. The Hollywood Reporter was first to run this news.
