HBO Is in Talks to Turn 'Parasite' into a TV Show with Adam McKay
Published Jan 09, 2020Bong Joon-ho's excellent Parasite has earned praise from just about everyone, from the Golden Globe-toting voters in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to the movie nerds here at Exclaim! As such, it only makes sense that Joon-ho would make a move to milk the property for all its worth. Now, it might be turned into a TV series.
According to Deadline, HBO is currently negotiating a Parasite series with Joon-ho alongside Adam McKay. The two would likely craft the limited television adaptation together, with help from CJ Entertainment, Hyperobject Industries and Kate Street Picture Company.
Details of the series are unclear, but with Joon-ho's involvement it will certainly match the tone of the film.
This is the second Joon-ho film to become a television series. The Snowpiercer show has already been renewed for a second season despite not having premiered yet.
