Chris Evans May Go From Captain America to ‘Snow Piercer’

Now that his stoic role as Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avenger and the upcoming The Avengers has successfully washed the taste of Chris Evans’ failed early career attempts at being the wise-cracking comedic actor out of my mouth, it’s time to start figuring out what he’s going to do next. And according to a report from Variety, it sounds like he’s being pretty wise in taking his next step.

Apparently the handsome young fella is negotiating to star in a movie called Snow Piercer, which is going to be the first English language feature from The Host and Mother director Joon-ho Bong. For those of you who don’t usually watch foreign films, Joon-ho Bong makes some awesome movies, so this is a project that should be taken seriously; even if the title and premise, that of a group of people trying to travel by train on an ice-covered world, sound a little lame.

Upping the ante even further on this film is the fact that Joon-ho co-wrote it with Chan-wook Park (Oldboy), who will also produce. I can see those of you who don’t like to watch foreign films looking at me funny again, but rest assured, Chan-wook Park is another one of those guys who makes really awesome movies. He’ll be making his domestic debut soon with a movie called Stoker that’s starring Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska, so we’ll all be on the same page soon. The same awesome page.
