While no firm date is still set, though we keep hearing of a potential summer 2013 release from The Weinstein Company, some new material has surfaced from Bong Joon-ho’s film Snowpiercer. No trailer has yet been put together but via a dedicated Korean site , some new storyboard images have surfaced as well as an intriguing bit of the music score from Marco Beltrami has become available.
Haven’t heard much about Snowpiercer? It’s been largely under the radar but has a really intriguing cast with Chris Evans, Song Kangho, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Ewen Bremner, Alison Pill, John Hurt, and Ed Harris set to start. And Chris Evans recently had a bit to say in a an interview :
“It takes place in the future. The whole world was frozen over and all of society lives on a train. It is kind of like an allegory for social classes and class warfare. The poorest people are in the back of the train and as you move forward in the train the classes rise. And there is a revolt, a revolution from the people in the back to the front of the train…
Director Bong has storyboards laid out so that…he has already edited it in his brain. For example, we will shoot the first line on you. We will shoot the second line on me. We will shoot the third line over here and you say, ‘Wait a minute. Don’t you want the whole scene here?’ and he is like. ‘No. Don’t need it.’ He has already committed to an edit. It is brilliant. It is borderline genius. It’s like building a house and instead of needing a bag of nails, it is like saying, ‘I need 53 nails.’ It is literally committing to a vision ahead of time. The trust that you feel is like, ‘God, this guy is operating on another plane.’ And I completely surrendered to it. You just completely commit to his vision and trust that he knows exactly what he is doing because he does.”
