Swinton, Bell in talks for ‘Snow Piercer’

Pair would star opposite Chris Evans in Bong Joon-ho pic

Tilda Swinton and Jamie Bell are in talks to join Chris Evans in the indie drama “Snow Piercer.”

Bong Joon-ho is helming from a script he penned with Park Chan-wook producing.

Set in a world covered in snow and ice, the story follows a train full of travelers who struggle to co-exist.

Park is producing through Moho Films. Production is expected to start in March, though no distributor is yet in place.

The pic marks Bong’s domestic directorial debut and similar to Park, who also just wrapped production on his first U.S. film, the Korean helmer is drawing notable thesps because of his track record overseas.

Bell was most recently seen in “The Adventures of Tintin” and can be seen next in Summit’s “Man on a Ledge.” Swinton can be seen next in Wes Anderson’s “Moonrise Kingdom.” On Tuesday, she snagged a BAFTA nom for her work in “We Need to Talk About Kevin.”

Bell is repped by WME and Vanessa Pereira at Artists Independent Management. Swinton is repped by WME and London agent Christian Hodell.
