Snowpiercer: Iddo Goldberg Joins Cast For TNT Drama Series


Deadline is reporting that Iddo Goldberg is the latest name to join the cast  of TNT’s TV adaptation of Snowpiercer.

 

The television series is set seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland and the remnants of humanity inhabit a gigantic, perpetually moving train that circles the globe. The show will tackle issues such as class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival.

 

Iddo Goldberg (whose credits include Peaky Blinders and Get Shorty) will be playing the role of Bennett, an engineer through and through. He sees the big picture but knows the devil is in the details. As one of the original engineers who helped design the train, he is also one of the few who knows the deepest secrets of the train.

 

Behind the scenes, the Snowpiercer series has undergone a few changes, with Graeme Manson replacing Josh Friedman as showrunner back in February. Then at the end of June, it was reported that pilot director Scott Derrickson was refusing to return to direct the reshoots over the series’ vision under the new showrunner, stating on twitter:

The 72-page Snowpiercer TV pilot script by @Josh_Friedman is the best I’ve ever read, Derrickson tweeted Friday. The feature-length pilot I made from that script may be my best work. The new showrunner has a radically different vision for the show. I am forgoing my option to direct the extreme reshoots.

 

James Hawes was then brought on board to direct and also serve as co-executive producer on the series.
