Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles Creator Developing Snowpiercer TV Show


For some reason the creator of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles adapting Bong Joon-ho’s Snowpiercer for TV just sounds magical to me.

Snowpiercer, an adaptation fo the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige, starred Chris Evans, Octavia Spencer, Tilda Swinton, and John Hurt. All that’s left of humanity after a global disaster is on a train which circles the Earth without ever stopping. The poor are relegated to the rear of the train while the most affluent live at the front.

Josh Friedman, creator of the amazing and too short lived Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and writer of 2005’s War of the Worlds, is set to write the script for this adaptation for Tomorrow Studios. The Hollywood Reporter says Bong Joon Ho and the film’s co-producer Dooho Choi are set to executive produce.

“We are very excited to be working with Josh on this incredible story,” Tomorrow Studios’ Marty Adelstein told THR. “As such a prolific and innovative writer he is the ideal person to create a massive new world in this adaptation. This is an expansive, high-concept project and we are thrilled to be a part of reimagining it for television.”

Friedman told them, “I’m a huge fan of director Bong’s films, especially Snowpiercer. It’s great the way the best sci-fi is great — thoughtful, political, funny, scary and sly. And it’s on a train. A big f—ing train. What more could you want?”

While Snowpiercer was a really interesting film on its own, I think if anyone was going to adapt the story for TV, Friedman is one of the best for the job. TSCC had so many great concepts that were never realized due to its cancelation and I’ve no doubt he’ll come up with great ideas for this show.

  1. Has anyone read the graphic novels? Is there more to cover than what happens in the movie, which ends with (spoilers) the last two surviving children presumably being Grizzly Man’d during the credits?
