After five long years it appears The Host director Bong Joon-ho is finally getting his post-apocalyptic tale off the ground. Being produced by Oldboy, Thirst and Stoker director Park Chan-wook, Snow Piercer – an adaptation of the French post-apocalyptic graphic novel Le Transperceneige – is gearing up for a shoot in the Czech Republic.
KoreanCinemaToday reports that Snow Piercer is already in pre-production with lensing set to begin next March in Prague with a budget of about $35 million for the Korean, U.S. and French co-production.
The film will also reunite him with his The Host and Memories Of Murder star Song Kang-ho (pictured above), who also starred in Chan-wook’s Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Lady Vengeance and J.S.A.: Joint Security Area.
The French graphic novel follows a group of people on a train without a final destination, struggling to survive after the end of the world brings on a cataclysmic ice age.
