Bong Joon Ho’s critical Korean smash film “Parasite” is taking its new form as a limited TV series in HBO. Since it has won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival and a Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film, it is no wonder why the movie was a bidding war between HBO and Netflix to become a mini-series.
Parasite sets to become a mini-series.
As per THR report, Succession’s executive producer Adam McCKay is teaming up with Joon Ho, writer, and director of the film though talks on the project are still underway.
Parasite follows the relationship of two clans where the impoverished Kim family makes their way into the wealthy life of Park family and ultimately ended up having deadly consequences. The film has earned 23 million in the US and a total of $130 million worldwide. The project will be a follow-up to the movie or an English remake.
Meanwhile, Bong has been making award-winning films such as The Host, Snowpiercer, and Okja. In fact, Snowpiercer is being adapted by TNT as a TV series. McKay is also the writer and director for 2018’s Vice, which earned him three Oscar nominations.
Bong and McKay will serve as the executive producer for the potential series under HBO.
