- Synopsis / Plot
- The story takes place in a world covered by ice and snow, and it centers on a train full of travelers struggling coexist while they continue to cling to familiar class structures. As is usually the case with these sorts of stories, it seems to be an exploration of human nature when pushed to the brink. Apparently Joon-ho has wanted to tackle this project since 2005, before he went on to make The Host. He hopes to start filming in 2011. Joon-ho mentioned that he was attracted to the darker aspects of the French graphic novel, but that his film won’t be a direct adaptation.
