A film from the 2006 Blacklist is finally making its way to the big screen and its garnered up a cast that’s sure to fill seats in the theater! The Punisher’s Jon Bernthal is set to star in the dark comedy called Snow Ponies alongside American Horror Story’s Evan Peters, Beauty & the Beast’s Josh Gad and Boardwalk Empire’s Charlie Plummer.
According to Deadline, Snow Ponies tells the tale of “a crew of seven hardened men who travel across a vicious landscape to deliver a mysterious package.” It will be directed by Darrin Prescott who has worked on films such as Black Panther, Baby Driver, and Deadpool 2 and The Post’s Pat Healy will pen the script.
Bernthal will soon be reprising his role as Shane on an upcoming episode of The Walking Dead, for which he was a series regular during the first two seasons. He is currently starring on Netflix’s original series The Punisher and is set to appear in the Ford v. Ferrari, which follows the true story of the battle between Ford and Ferrari to win Le Mans in 1966.
Evan Peters, who has been appearing on Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story anthology since 2011, is about to appear in the newest X-Men film Dark Phoenix with Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, and Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner. His most recent big-screen venture was American Animals, which followed four young men who mistake their lives for a movie and attempt one of the most audacious heists in U.S. history.
Fans will definitely recognize Josh Gad’s voice from his work as Olaf in Frozen, but they will most likely recognize him from his role as LeFou in Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast. He recently appeared in Murder on the Orient Express and is set to play the role of Truman Capote in Party of the Century.

Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
