Frances Ha star Mickey Sumner has joined the TNT Snowpiercer series
Frances Ha star Mickey Sumner has joined theÂ upcomingÂ TNTÂ Snowpiercer series, according to Deadline. She joinsÂ Academy Award winner Jennifer ConnellyÂ (A Beautiful Mind), Tony Award winner Daveed Diggs (Hamilton, Black-ish) in the futuristic thriller, set to be directed by Doctor Strangeâ€˜s Scott DerricksonÂ and based on the acclaimed movie of the same name.
Set seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, the TNTÂ SnowpiercerÂ series centers on the remnants of humanity, who inhabit a gigantic, perpetually moving train that circles the globe. Class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival are questioned in this riveting television adaptation.
Sumner will play Bess Till. “Thoughtful, empathetic and savvy, Bess is a brakeman, part of the trainâ€™s security force. She finds herself at the center of a mystery that rocks the trainâ€™s uneasy status quo.”Â Connelly will play Melanie Cavill, a First Class passenger who works as the Voice of the Train â€“ responsible for making the daily announcements over its PA system. Though many in her VIP position are dismissive of the lower class passengers, Melanie is curiously fascinated by them. Diggs will play 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.
The TNTÂ Snowpiercer series is a co-production of Tomorrow Studios and Turnerâ€™s Studio T, along with CJ Entertainment. The project is being executive-produced by writer-showrunner Josh Friedman (Avatar 4, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles); director Scott Derrickson; Tomorrow Studiosâ€™ Marty Adelstein (Aquarius, Prison Break) and Becky Clements (Good Behavior, Aquarius); and the original filmâ€™s Bong Joon Ho, Park Chan-wook, Lee Tae-hun and Dooho Choi.
