Before he bagged the Oscar with Parasite, South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-Ho made the fast-paced action thriller in Snowpiercer, which took up the same topic of class divide and put it on a post-apocalyptic situation where a train is on the run continuously. The film’s classy setup and action sequences are a favourite of many, with more people getting attracted to it post his win at the Academy Awards.
Now, TNT and Netflix have come forward with an idea of adapting the series into a TV show of the same name. The teaser for Snowpiercer’s series version has dropped now, and it showcases just the same setting as the film but with different characters. Daveed Diggs and Jennifer Connelly play the lead roles, with the teaser having them depict the two sides of the Snowpiercer and how the lives of the people are different within the same train.
The show has a long list of executive producers led by Bong Joon-Ho himself and another visionary filmmaker in Park Chan Wook. It would be really interesting to see if it can match up to the excitement of the original film, and that’s something we can find out on May 25th.
