Jennifer Connelly in American Pastoral

Oscar-winning actor Jennifer Connelly has been cast as a First Class passenger in Scott Derrickson’s TV adaptation of Bong Joon-ho’s Snowpiercer. The critically-acclaimed 2013 movie was a post-apocalyptic tale of class warfare and survival in an inhospitable, frozen world. Humanity had been reduced to the confines of a train that constantly circles the icy globe, with strict class-based systems quickly coming to dictate life aboard the Snowpiercer.

Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson was confirmed to direct and co-produce the hour-long TV pilot based on the movie, with Hamilton actor Daveed Diggs attached to star as a prisoner at the tail-end of the train. Now Jennifer Connelly has been cast in a role that will explore life in First Class.
