Irish American actor Chris Evans is in talks to star in “Snow Piercer” directed by Bong Joon-ho, the man responsible for “The Host”, Variety reports.

Joon-ho also worked on the script with Park Chan-work (director of “Oldboy”). The story is set in a post-apocalyptic snow-covered world and follows a train full of travelers who struggle to co-exist according to IMDB.

Firstshowing.net reports that the movie will be set in “some kind of new ice age”. They continue, “The train includes many survivors from all over the world and is divided up by economic classes, so people are fighting each other over that class struggle.”

Sounds a bit Mark Twain’s “Cannibalism in the Cars” to me!
