A U.S. production studio optioned the rights to Bong Joon-ho’s “Snowpiercer” and plans to turn it into a television series.

Tomorrow Studios tapped Josh Friedman as the head writer for the project. The 48-year-old American penned the 2005 film adaptation of H.G. Wells’ “War of the Worlds” and “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.”

“Snowpiercer” represented Bong’s first foray into English-speaking films as he employed the talents of Chris Evans (“Captain America”), Ed Harris (“A Beautiful Mind”) and Tilda Swinton (“The Chronicles of Narnia”) just to name a few.

The movie set a South Korean record for production budget at $40 million and more than doubled that in box office revenue at $86.8 million.

But the film only made $4.5 million of that in the U.S.

“We are very excited to be working with Josh on this incredible story,” Tomorrow Studios founder Marty Adelstein told The Hollywood Reporter. “As such a prolific and innovative writer he is the ideal person to create a massive new world in this adaptation. This is an expansive, high-concept project and we are thrilled to be a part of reimagining it for television.”

The rights were purchased from South Korea’s largest movie studio CJ Entertainment & Media.
