Freeze Frame!!

Kurt Ostlund is busy filming a recurring role on TNT’s adaptation of Snowpiercer.

Snowpiercer is based on the French graphic novel by Jacques Lob (writer) and Jean-Marc Rochette (art). The show takes place in an apocalyptic future where the planet has been ravaged by a new ice age and the only survivors live aboard a high-speed train.

Co-produced by Tomorrow Studios, Turner’s Studio T, and Korea’s CJ Entertainment, the series is executive produced by Tomorrow Studios’ Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements, as well as Matthew O’Connor. The producing staff behind the original film — Bong, Park Chan-wook, Lee Tae-hun and Choi Doo-ho — have also joined the television adaptation as co-executive producers. James Hawes, director of the series who replaced Scott Derrickson and Orphan Black showrunner Graeme Manson who replaced Josh Friedman share the role. Jennifer Connelly and Daveed Diggs will star in the Snowpiercer TV series and it is still expected to hit TNT sometime this year.
 

Doctor Strange and Sinister filmmaker Scott Derrickson helmed the feature-length pilot before famously stepping away.

Derrickson said the pilot, from a 72-page script penned by Josh Friedman (Sarah Connor Chronicles, War of the Worlds), “may be my best work.”

Synopsis:
Based on the French graphic novel ‘Le Transperceneige‘, the series focuses on the last survivors on the planet. They inhabit ‘The Snowpiercer‘, a train that travels around the globe, which is divided into two feuding classes.

It touches on themes of class warfare, social injustice, and the politics of survival as the remnants of humanity — split into fractions of the lower and upper-class — are now trapped in an always-moving train circling the globe seven years after the Freeze, a devastating event that left the world a frosted-over wasteland.

The series will premiere on TNT and Netflix in 2019.
