Captain America star Chris Evans is in talks to join the cast of Snow Piercer, the latest project from Bong Joon-ho, director of the Korean sci-fi sensation The Host, Variety reports. The film, which Joon-ho conceived with Oldboy director Park Chan-wook, is set “a world covered in snow and ice” and follows “a train full of travelers who struggle to co-exist.” Evans, presumably, will play one of the travelers. Either that or the train.
Snow Piercer is slated to begin shooting in March. Chris Evans can next be seen in Marvel’s The Avengers, which opens May 4, 2012.
