Snowpiercer - Original Version for Several Markets

Hope for Territories Outside of the US

The film Snowpiercer, directed by Bong Joon-ho (Mother, The Host) and starring Chris Evans, John Hurt and Ed Harris, is surely interesting for audiences outside of South Korea. In the US, the film is likely shortened by a whopping 20 minutes. WHy? Because the US distributor Weinstein Company thinks that's the right thing to do (see earlier news). But that's not that clear any longer. As the director announced, negotiations with TWC are still underway.

Even though the possibility of cuts and their amount for English speaking territories is not set in stone yet, there's good news for European film fans:

"Me and The Weinstein Company are still negotiating about everything," the director said at Deauville. "The movie at the festival, the French version is my own director’s cut. In Korea, Japan, France and many other European countries have all bought my director’s cut. And for North America we are still negotiating with The Weinstein Company, we are discussing." (Playlist)
