So EW is reporting that TNT has made a pilot order for a TV version of the sci-fi movie SNOWPIERCER.
Those of you not familiar with the movie? Well, one, GO WATCH IT! Because it’s AMAZING! I’m pretty sure it’s still available to stream on Netflix, so really, no reason not to. I mean, unless you hate gritty, thought-provoking sci-fi? But it is really an amazing movie, and definitely worth your time!
BUT the movie itself revolves around this concept of class-warfare on a futuristic train, where all of humanity is housed after the world had frozen over.
BUT the TV series!
Honestly, I don’t know how I feel about the idea of a TV series based on the movie. I mean, if there were going to go for a series as a prequel, or a sequel to the movie, I’d be more into it. But it sounds like they’ll be adapting the movie into a series. And not entirely sure there’s a viable concept there… I mean, how do you feel about 13 episodes that takes place solely on a train?
A little cramped, am I right?
But I hope I’m wrong. We’ll see if it gets a full-season order.
