Harris plays Wilford, the train’s creator, in this science fiction thriller written and directed by Joon-ho Bong. In a future where the earth has become a frozen wasteland, and most of humanity is dead, the survivors live on board the Snowpiercer, a train that continually circles the globe. Co-starring Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, and Tilda Swinton. On why he joined this film:
It was really having seen director Bong’s films that made me want to work with him. I would have played any role, if he’d asked me, just because I really appreciated his work. But the fact that he wanted me to play this guy who’s talked about through the whole film, and who’s the Wizard of Oz behind a curtain, had some attraction to me.
