The Snowpiercer TNT series has finished production, LRM has learned. In a recent roundtable interview with actress Jennifer Connelly while on the circuit promoting the firefighter movie Only the Brave, the question was raised about the status of the series, which when we last heard, was in production.
Connelly gave an update, saying:
“We filmed it. I just finished filming the first episode, and I had a great time doing it.”
Unfortunately, when asked if she could tease anything about it, she replied:
“Probably not so much (laughs).”
However, while she didn’t delve into any specifics, she did go on to praise director Scott Derrickson, the work he did on the episode, as well as the work he did on the Marvel film, Doctor Strange.
Snowpiercer is based on the French novel Le Transperceneige, which was also recently turned into a feature film starring Chris Evans and Tilda Swinton, and directed by Bong Joon-Ho. The story tells a post-apocalyptic one, set in a world where a weather-changing experiment went wrong and threw the Earth into a perpetual ice age. The last bits of humanity reside on ever-moving train that has been divided into different classes. Connelly character is named Melanie, and she is a member of the train’s First Class, and is also known as the “Voice of the Train,” as she is the one who makes the announcements.
Snowpiercer is set to hit TNT next year!
