Though he’ll next be seen as Captain America in Marvel’s The Avengers, Chris Evans is eyeing a decidedly different role. Variety reports that the actor is in negotiations to star in Bong Joon-ho’s (The Host) Snow Piercer. The film is “set in a world covered in snow and ice” and follows a group of train travelers who struggle to co-exist. Oldboy director Park Chan-wook is producing, and Joon-ho will be making his domestic directorial debut with the drama. The director previously talked to Steve some time ago about the project, which he revealed takes place in a new ice age.
Joon-ho’s monster movie The Host became the highest grossing South Korean film of all time and spurned talk of a Hollywood remake, so his domestic debut is a pretty big deal. Chan-wook just made his own English-language debut with the horror drama Stoker starring Nicole Kidman, which recently wrapped filming. Evans is currently shooting the crime drama The Iceman. Production on Snow Piercer will get underway in March.
