“Parasite,” one of last year’s most acclaimed movies, winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes and an Oscar probably-will-be nominee, is coming to TV. Oh, I mean of course the Korean film is coming to TV, where those who didn’t make it to the theater will have a chance to enjoy its dark wit.
But it’s also coming to TV as a limited series — HBO, to be specific.
Writer-director Bong Joon Ho is teaming with Adam McKay for the series. McKay, formerly the head writer at “Saturday Night Live,” is the writer-director of “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy,” “The Big Short,” and “Vice.” He is also an executive producer and a director of “Succession” on HBO, for whom he is putting together a limited series about Jeffrey Epstein.
The TV version of the story, which is about a wealthy family and the poor family who come to work for them, will be in English, but that’s about all we know so far.
