In some potentially brilliant news, a Parasite TV series is on the way.
Via The Hollywood Reporter, HBO has picked up the rights to produce a series based on Bong Joon-ho’s Golden Globe-nommed Parasite. Bong and Vice’s Adam McKay to develop the show.
There’s no word just yet on whether any such Parasite series would operate as a follow-up to Boon’s movie – due for a UK release on February 7th – or whether this small screen offering would be an English language redo of that picture.
Where the Parasite film is concerned, the official blurb on that reads:
Greed and class discrimination threaten the newly formed symbiotic relationship between the wealthy Park family and the destitute Kim clan.
As ever, expect more on HBO’s Parasite as we get it.
