Casting Call: John Hurt Joins Bong Joon-Ho’s SNOW PIERCER; Jake Hoffman and Nikki Reed Set for Dubstep Thriller SNAP
We’ve got a couple of casting stories to share with you this afternoon. First up, the cast for Bong Joon-ho’s (The Host) thriller Snow Piercer has gained yet another stellar actor. In an interview with The Telegraph (via The Playlist), John Hurt (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) revealed that he has joined the cast of the apocalyptic pic. Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, and Jamie Bell are set to star in the film as a group of train travelers learning to co-exist in a new ice age. Production is scheduled to get underway in March, and Snow Piercer is already shaping up to be one of my most anticipated projects of 2013.
Hit the jump for casting news concerning the indie dubstep thriller (that’s right) Snap.
I’m not entirely sure how dubstep figures into all of this, Deadline’s report states that the pic is set in the world of underground dubstep. The hope is to return to Sundance in 2013 with the finished film.
