Chris Evans to Star in Bong Joon-ho’s Snow Piercer


Variety says that Captain America and Marvel’s The Avengers star Chris Evans is in negotiations to star in Bong Joon-ho’s indie Snow Piercer.

Joon-ho (The Host) wrote the script with Park Chan-wook (Oldboy) producing.

Filming is scheduled to start in March.
