Chris Evans' Upcoming Sci-Fi Flick Held Hostage By Harvey Weinstein!? Deets HERE!

snowpiercer legal battle chris evans weinsteins bong joon ho screening rights

Nooo! This is one injustice even Captain America can't fix!

South Korean director Bong Joon-ho has, by most accounts, put together a marvelous movie about a dystopian future with a FIERCE cast of A-list American actors.

Starring Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Tilda Swinton, Octavia Spencer, and many others, Snowpiercer was supposed to be a smash hit in theaters!

There's only one problem, Harvey Weinstein won't let anyone watch it! Not anyone on this continent, at least!

Snowpiercer is getting spectacular reviews and Bong Joon-ho keeps sending his film to film festivals in North America, trying to let more people see it, but The Weinstein Company owns the distribution rights over here and is apparently "forbidding" any screenings until they get a cut of the film they're happy with!

Sources say the Weinsteins want 25 minutes of character development cut from the film and also want to add voiceover from Neil Gaiman. Maybe they're trying to turn it into a summer blockbuster??

Ugh! We hope this legal issue gets resolved soon! We want to see our sex-ay Winter Soldier back up on the big screen!

    What's up with Weinstein always cutting movies for the american audience? As an european I don't understand the need. Does he think americans are to stupid or will get to bored to watch character development etc!? Is it all about making money and not quality film?

    Mr. Weinstein, I want to see the WHOLE film including the 25 minutes of character development. I'm tired of dumbed down films that promote no empathy or allegiance with the characters and their motives. I will go see a version as it was intended by its creators, and I won't go see a version that number crunching suits have messed with.
