EXCLUSIVE Interview: Bong Joon-ho On Casting SNOWPIERCER (Part 2 of 3)
Last week, ScreenAnarchy was gifted the opportunity to spend an hour talking to South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho about his hugely-anticipated science-fiction thriller Snowpiercer. The film opened in Bong's homeland back in August, where it quickly became his most succesful film to-date, selling upwards of 10 million tickets.
While the specifics of the film's release in the rest of the world are still being ironed out, and were discussed in part one of this interview, we also talked about the incredible cast Bong has assembled for his first English language production. Impressive for a $100 million Hollywood studio flick, how did Bong get Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton and Ed Harris, alongside his Korean regulars Song Kang-ho and Ko Ah-sung, together for his $40 million production, shot in the Czech Republic?
Below you'll find a gallery of the brilliant actors involved in the film, along with Bong's comments about how they came to be a part of Snowpiercer. Then be sure to click through to part three of the interview here.
