After successfully bringing the French graphic novel “Le Transperceneige” to the big screen in Bong Joon-ho’s Snowpiercer, CJ Entertainment & Media has its heart set on doing the same for television. Tomorrow Studios has optioned their pitch to craft a television show out of the material and the project is now moving ahead. I’m not sure how they can improve upon the film, but I’m willing to watch them try.
Josh Friedman (War of the Worlds, “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles“) has come on board to pen the pilot. He will also reportedly stay on for the series itself, if the project makes it that far. Bong Joon-ho, Chan-wook Park, Dooho Choi, Marty Adelstein, and Becky Clements will executive produce the potential series. As we hear more on, we will definitely pass it along. In the meantime, I suggest you see out the Chris Evans-starring film, if you haven’t already.
