We previously reported that Tilda Swinton (We Need to Talk About Kevin) and Jamie Bell (Retreat, The Adventures of Tintin) were in talks to join Chris Evans in the indie Snow Piercer from The Host helmer Bong Joon-ho.
And now it appears that Joh Hurt (Alien) has tossed his hat in the ring as well. Per The Telegraph, “As well as starring in a new Henry V, Hurt will from March to June in 2012 be working on a film called Snow Piercer by the Korean director Bong joon-Ho, who made ‘Mother’ and ‘Memories Of Murder’. Hurt added: ‘All the film crew refer to him, with great reverence, as ‘Director Bong’. I love the fact that I am working for Director Bong.’
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.
