Snow Piercer's cast grows; Ewan Bremner joins the journey

Bong Joon-Ho's chilly, apocalyptic SNOW PIERCER is swiftly forging ahead, picking up pieces of its international cast with authority. It already has such names as Octavia Specer (recent Oscar winner), John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Kang Ho Song and Chris Evans along for the ride, and per Variety today it has grabbed another familiar face: Ewan Bremner.

Bremner will always be "Spud" from TRAINSPOTTING to me, but he's been seen in flicks like ALIEN VS. PREDATOR, PEARL HARBOR and BLACK HAWK DOWN.

Here's the plot rundown on SNOW PIERCER in case you need it: 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…

The Scottish thesp will play a father who joins forces with Evans' character to save his kidnapped son.

Tilda Swinton
