Parasite was considered one of 2019’s greatest success tales a sharply crafted piece of sophistication commentary from Korean author/director extraordinaire Bong Joon-ho that ended up doing surprisingly nicely on the American field workplace. It’s not all that shocking that the film is getting an American remake, given how People famously hate something with subtitles. What’s slightly shocking is simply the way it’s occurring, and who’s concerned.
First, the how: HBO can be bringing Parasite to the small display with a restricted collection adaptation. Whether or not that is going to be a straight remake or some kind of sequel isn’t fully clear, however will probably be primarily based on Parasite and will probably be on HBO.
And even stranger is the who. Bong Joon-ho is on board to govt produce and he’ll be joined by … Adam McKay? The director of Anchorman and Step Brothers?
Sure, however McKay can be the man who’s been turning his attentions to political “based-on-a-true-story” kind motion pictures recently, with movies like The Large Brief and Vice. McKay has additionally govt produced HBO’s Succession, which positively has class consciousness on the mind, so Parasite doesn’t appear fully out of his wheelhouse.
However please, do go see Parasite earlier than you catch no matter this tailored collection finally ends up being.
