From director Bong Joon Ho and adapted from the French graphic novel “Le Transperceneige,” Snowpiercer tells the story of what happens after Earth has been frozen for 17 years, making the planet uninhabitable, and the few who are still alive are separated by class and now live aboard a train that perpetually circles the world. When a young leader (Chris Evans) from the slum-like tail section decides to start a riot, his fellow passengers charge toward the engine located at the front of the train, where they seek to gain absolute authority.
At the film’s press day, actor Ed Harris (who plays the train’s creator) spoke at a roundtable interview about what made him want to be a part of this film, being a big fan of the films of director Bong Joon Ho, how they came up with the look for his character, director Bong’s unusual shooting style, that the film was basically being edited while it was being shot, and how much he enjoyed working with Chris Evans. He also talked about why it’s taking him so long to get back into the director’s chair again, and his experiencing voicing a helicopter for the animated feature Planes: Fire & Rescue. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
