Ewen Bremner Boards Snow Piercer
He's on for the thriller

Ewen Bremner Boards Snow Piercer

It’s been nearly a month since we heard about someone joining the cast of Bong Joon-Ho’s snowpocalyptic thriller Snow Piercer, but while it looked like he had found his cast, it turns out he’s still adding folk: Ewen Bremner is getting his ticket punched for the film.

He’s joining a healthy ensemble that already includes Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell and newly minted Oscar winner Octavia Spencer.

Snow Piercer, which Bong co-wrote with producer Park Chan-Wook, is set in a world where the Earth is almost completely covered in the frosty white stuff after some badly misjudged climate experiments. Most of humanity survives by riding the titular train, which is powered by a perpetual motion machine. And is fortunately not operated by any British rail company, or it would be a very short film.

Despite the need to survive, old class divides remain in place, and we don’t just mean those who get access to a trolley full of packets of Monster Munch and those who have to make their way to the galley. There are even worse problems to contend with: Evans is playing a man looking to rescue his kidnapped son and Bremner will be a father who offers to help.

Bong will kick off shooting this March in Prague. Bremner was last seen alongside his old Trainspotting mucker Ewan McGregor in Perfect Sense and will crop up in both Mike Newell’s Great Expectations (out later this year) and Jack The Giant Killer (shoved to 2013).
