Tony® winner Daveed Diggs has boarded Snowpiercer – TNT’s adaptation of Bong Joon Ho’s futuristic thriller set seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, and the remnants of humanity inhabit a gigantic, perpetually moving train that circles the globe.
Diggs will star as Layton Well, a prisoner barely surviving the harsh conditions in the tail end of the train. A quiet thinker who spends his days sniffing the industrial-waste-turned-drug Chronole and tending to his cage full of rats, Layton becomes a reluctant participant in a struggle that could upend life on the train.
Snowpiercer’s pilot will be directed by Doctor Strange’s Scott Derrickson. A premiere date is TBD.
