Weinstein Co. nabs Bong Joon Ho's 'Snowpiercer' in U.S., and other territories
The Weinstein Co. has acquired rights to Bong Joon Ho’s upcoming post-apocalyptic action thriller Snowpiercer in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
Set in a future where a failed experiment to stop global warming creates an ice age that kills off all life on the planet except for the inhabitants of the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe and is powered by a sacred perpetual-motion engine. A class system evolves on the train, but a revolution brews.
Park Chan-wook, Lee Tae Hun and Jeong Tae-sung produced Snowpiercer. Miky Lee executive produced.
“Snowpiercer is the amazing vision of Bong Joon Ho," said Harvey Weinstein. "With a stellar cast led by Chris Evans, we look forward to bringing this action-packed thriller to audiences worldwide."
