Another movie being turned into a tv show...how very original.
The movie already did the premise justice so why turn it into a tv series? I can't see how this series could last more than 1 or 2 seasons.
I'm still suffering from a serious mind**** after watching the movie last night. I'm not so sure about a series. Let me know how it goes.
So, how many seasons do they think should take to travel from the back of the train to the front?
'Snowpiercer' TV Adaptation Lands at TNT With Pilot Order
The potential series will be based on the 2013 film that was written and directed by Bong Joon Ho in his first English-language production. The movie, which starred Chris Evans and Tilda Swinton is set seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, and the remnants of humanity inhabit a gigantic, perpetually moving train that circles the globe. Class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival are questioned.
Scott Derrickson to direct, Daveed Diggs to star
Lucas O'Connor (Person of Interest) and Halley Gross (Westworld, The Last of Us Part II) are writers on this.
Awesome Lucas O'Connor probably wrote one of the most important episodes of POI (''Death Benefit'')
I think this could work if the first season was spent setting up the world in a compelling way. If they decide in the first episode to head to the front of the train, that'd be weird. Let the reality they live in breathe...develop the characters in various cars. Maybe the end of season 1 cliffhanger could be the decision to get to the front. Then spend all of season 2 struggling to get to the front. Then...well...thats the end. I'm not sure how you stretch it out over more seasons.
Life before or after the events of Snowpiercer. Spending each ep or season!? in one car at a time sounds like a drag.
Maybe there is like 100 cars and each episode shows them getting through one car. lol
TNT Parts Ways With Snowpiercer Showrunner Josh Friedman (EXCLUSIVE)
Also didn't realize there was already a thread for this, not sure how to delete the recent one I created.

Hmm thats not a good sign.
Oh well, soon I will be doing my own snowpiercer! Ill be riding the sapsan (bullet train) from Moscow to st Petersburg. Hopefully wont be as violent!
Bummed to hear about this. Sounds like the Friedman & Derrickson were on the same page, with the Orphan Black guy being more favorable to the producers.
Cool to see Diggs & Connelly seem to still be aboard post-pilot though.
