John Hurt the latest name to join Bong Joon-ho's train thriller Snow Piercer

Last week Jake gave us all the latest update on Bong Joon-ho's SNOW PIERCER when he told us that Kelly Masterson was joining the project to do some touchups on the script. Now here I am a few days later with some more casting news for SNOW PIERCER to throw at you!

According to The Telegraph legendary actor John Hurt is the latest name to join Joon-ho's thriller, which goes a little something like this:

Earth is completely frozen over as a new ice age hits…The world is covered in snow and ice. The only living people, the last survivors, are onboard a leviathan train speeding along the rail tracks endlessly. But they are fighting each other...

For survival, for dominance, they are locked into a gruesome fight to the death along a linear path inside the train. From the tail end carriage reminiscent of Auschwitz, to the gold class carriages at the front, full of decadent pleasures, our protagonists must penetrate deep into the dark secrets that shroud the train…

Hurt (above), who will be shooting the flick from March to June, joins the previously announced Tilda Swinton (below), Jamie Bell and Chris Evans in the adaptation.

We'll be sure to keep our eyes open for more on SNOW PIERCER as it comes our way so you'll want to check back soon for more updates.

Extra Tidbit: We first heard about this project way back in October 2009!
