Casting New For TNT’s Upcoming SNOWPIERCER Series

Earlier today TNT announced that Jennifer Connelly (A Beautiful Mind) is the latest to join the upcoming SNOWPIERCER series, based on the acclaimed movie of the same name. Head inside for more!

Connelly joins Daveed Diggs (“Black-ish”) in the series that will be directed by Doctor Strange helmer Scott Derrickson. The actress will play Melanie Cavill, a First Class passenger who works as the Voice of the Train – responsible for making the daily announcements over its PA system. Though many in her VIP position are dismissive of the lower class passengers, Melanie is curiously fascinated by them.

The futuristic sci-fi thriller takes place seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland and centers on the remnants of humanity, who inhabit a gigantic, perpetually moving train that circles the globe. Class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival are questioned in this riveting television adaptation.

Snowpiercer is a co-production of Tomorrow Studios and Turner’s Studio T, along with CJ Entertainment. The project is being executive-produced by writer-showrunner Josh Friedman (Avatar 4, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles); director Scott Derrickson; Tomorrow Studios’ Marty Adelstein (Aquarius, Prison Break) and Becky Clements (Good Behavior, Aquarius); and Bong Joon Ho, Park Chan-wook, Lee Tae-hun and Dooho Choi from the original film.
