… Jennifer Connelly and Daveed Diggs

"Joon-ho Bong is a fascinating filmmaker who brings fantastic visuals and a pointed morality to every one of his tales. His talents were most recently put on display in the Netflix film Okja, which arrived more than 10 years after his breakthrough film The Host, a creature feature with a now-familiar pro-environmentalism slant. But for my money, the 2013 film Snowpiercer, based on the French post-apocalyptic graphic novel "Le Transperceneige", is the story most deserving of further exploration. This is all to say that I'm thrilled a series version of this sci-fi tale will be coming to the small screen.

This project's been in the works for a while now, so it's nice to see it become official. As TV Line reports, TNT has ordered a 10-episode run of the futuristic thriller based on the acclaimed film. And they're not skimping on the cast here, with Oscar-winner Jennifer Connelly (A Beautiful Mind) and Hamilton stand-out Daveed Diggs starring in the lead roles. They'll be trapped in a high-tech, perpetually-in-motion super-train that houses the last vestiges of humanity and endlessly travels around the world, which has become a frozen, uninhabitable wasteland…"

Jennifer Connelly's career must be in a slump.

Seriously? It takes an entire series to make it to the locomotive?

I like it… maybe when they arrived to the locomotive became less interesting… but the idea for Post Apoc is great!… also remember they saw by the Windows that some people managed to survive in the open…

It was a one time watch, only on TV, and only included in the package (not even PPV) movie based on a silly idea.

The 10 part series – Why?
