Snowpiercer TV series

The director of TNT’s Snowpiercer TV series pilot has stepped off the train.

Doctor Strange and Sinister director Scott Derrickson was hired over a year ago to helm the cable adaptation of the French graphic novel that was famously brought to the big screen by Bong Joon-ho back in 2013. A new showrunner has since come aboard and wants “extreme reshoots” on the pilot, but Derrickson recently took to Twitter to explain that he won’t be the one to oversee them.

I love SYFY’s 12 Monkeys and I want you to love it, too. Because I fully believe 12 Monkeys is one of the best TV shows out there and it hurts me that more people don’t know about how truly unique and amazing it is. I take it personally, people.

Those of you who haven’t watched 12 Monkeys, aren’t caught up, or stopped along the way and haven’t returned, I’m telling you – you need to watch. It’s a moral imperative.

I hear you over there saying it. “There’s so much TV out there already.”

I get it. In the age of Peak TV, finding room for new shows is hard. Especially when you’re juggling work, friends, kids, bowling teams, etc. And I know people are always throwing out statements like, “You need to watch this show!” and “It’s one of the best shows out there” about, well, everything these days. But this time it’s true.
