While Parasite might be on the road to the Oscars (he won the prize of best foreign film at the Golden Globes 2020), another project profile for Bong Joon Ho in 2020. As explained by The Hollywood Reporter, the director who had already proven with The Host, Snowpiercer , or even Okja would be in talks with HBO to write a series of suitable Parasite. The project is still vague, since we do not know if it will be an adaptation or a sequel. One thing is for sure : the project will be in English. The Hollywood Reporter makes it clear that no deal has been signed but that “discussions are ongoing” between the filmmaker and HBO. Netflix was in the running for this adaptation, but it is ultimately up to the cable channel, which would have won the rights.
According to the info on the specialized site, Bong Joon Ho, who has written and directed Parasite, should be working with Adam McKay for this series that they would produce also. Adam McKay is currently a producer and director Succession, rewarded with the award for best drama series and best actor in a drama series at the Golden Globes. He has also directed and written The Big Short, for which he won the Oscar for best adapted screenplay in 2016, and Vice, nominated eight times for an Oscar in 2018.
