Yesterday we told you that Annalise Basso (Ouija: Origin of Evil, Oculus, Captain Fantastic) and Sasha Frolova are set as series regulars opposite Jennifer Connelly and Daveed Diggs in TNT’s pilot “Snowpiercer”, a futuristic thriller drama based on the acclaimed 2013 feature by Bong Joon-ho. Now, Deadline is reporting that Alison Wright (“The Americans”) and Benjamin Haigh (The Conjuring 2) have also joined the growing cast.
The hourlong drama pilot, directed by Doctor Strange, Sinister, and Exorcism of Emily Rose helmer Scott Derrickson, explores class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival.
The series is set seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, and the remnants of humanity inhabit a gigantic, perpetually moving train that circles the globe.
Wright will play Lilah Anderson. She is careful and quiet but a pragmatic and independent thinker. Lilah lives with her husband and daughter in a fourth-class cabin and works in the train’s nail salon. Lilah doesn’t know how strong she is, but she’ll soon be forced to find out.
Haigh will portray Fergus McConnell, who lives in the back of the train amongst poverty. He helps his mother care for his sick father, and does his best to contribute to the daily struggles of life in this part of the train.
