Have you already seen probably the most-talked-about film of last year, Parasite? This South Korean masterpiece dare not be missed.
However, just in case you have missed it, we certainly recommend you to see it as soon as possible and now, look forward to something else too.
According to a report in The Hollywood Reporter, a limited series based on the film is currently said to be in works at HBO. The best part about this is that Bong Joon-Ho, the director of the film is also coming on board and teaming up with Adam McKay (Vice, The Big Short) to develop the series.
Deals are not done, but talks are underway with HBO, which came out on top following a fierce bidding war with Netflix for the rights.
Parasite followed the poor but cunning Kim family as they ingratiated themselves into the lives of their wealthy employers, the Park family. The relationship between the two clans went through several twists and ultimately ended up having deadly consequences. It is unclear if the limited series will be some sort of follow-up to the movie or an English-language remake.
The Korean film, seen as a take on class warfare as well as a genre thriller, has earned more than $23 million at the domestic box office and a massive $130 million globally. A possible best picture Oscar contender, the movie has already racked up other awards, including Sunday's Golden Globes win for best motion picture — foreign language. Parasite also was recently named best picture of the year by the National Society of Film Critics and appeared on many top 10 lists.
Well, I for one, most certainly cannot wait for the series to happen soon.
