The eagle-eyed folks at Bleeding Cool spotted a listing on Amazon for an English translation of the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob, Benjamin Legrand and Jean-Marc Rochette. Set to be published by Titan Comics, the first volume will be released on January 28, 2014 with the second volume coming February 25, 2014.
The last we heard about the big screen adaptation of Snowpiercer, The Weinstein Company was planning on cutting twenty minutes from the film to make it more accessible to some audiences. Director Bong Joon-ho recently screened the film at the Busan festival in South Korea and said “We are still in discussions about the cut, but it is clear that this is the only director’s cut you will be able to see” (via Variety).
The film version of Snowpiercer is still without a North American release date. Could The Weinstein Company plan a release to coincide with the comic’s American debut? Check back here for official confirmation on the film’s release and pre-order your copy of Snowpiercer by clicking here.
