TNT has enlisted Hamilton alum Daveed Diggs and Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson for its live-action television series based on the comic book-turned-film Snowpiercer, according to Deadline. Diggs will reportedly play Layton Well, a prisoner aboard the enigmatic train. Derrickson is said to have signed on to direct the pilot and act as an overall executive producer for the show.
Snowpiercer originated as the 1982 French OGN The Snow-Piercer, and in 2013 was adapted as a live-action film with actor Chris Evans and director Bong Joon-Ho. TNT's TV adaptation is based off the live-action film, with Joon-Ho and several others from the film acting as executive producers.
