Bande Dessinee aren’t just for kids any more! And they are hot in Korea, where horror superstar directors Bong Joon-Ho (The Host) and Park Chan-Wook (Oldboy) will team on an English language adaptation of the French graphic novel series La Transperceneige. Park will produce, and Bong direct.
The story, though, sounds more issue-driven sci-fi than tension-filled horror. It¹s adapted from a French graphic novel by Jaques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette, which chronicles the world of a train that serves as the last refuge for a depleted human race. As it dashes from an impending ice age, the carriages represent a microcosm of human society within their different classes.
