Parasite, one of the most acclaimed movies of 2019, is heading to HBO as a limited series.
Bong Joon Ho, who wrote and directed the Palm d’or winner and Oscar hopeful, is teaming with Adam McKay, whose recent work The Big Short and Vice has earned him multiple awards nominations.
Deals are not done but talks are underway with HBO, which came out on top of a 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.
