Chris Evans (pictured below; Captain America) is in negotiations to star in the indie Snow Piercer from The Host helmer Bong Joon-ho, reports Variety.
Joon-ho also wrote the script with Park Chan-wook, director of the original Korean cult classic Oldboy, producing. “Set in a world covered in snow and ice, the story follows a train full of travelers who struggle to co-exist.”
The film will also reunite Joon-ho 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.
Chan-wook is producing through Moho Films. Production is expected to start in March, though no distribution is yet in place.
Chan-wook just wrapped production on his domestic directorial debut Stoker with Mia Wasikowska, Nicole Kidman and Matthew Goode.
