Parasite TV Show Coming Up As HBO Max In Talks With Bong Jo
Bong Joon Ho created a masterpiece when he finished working on his recent movie Parasite. Since its release back in 2019, the movie has gone to win numerous awards, including Palme d’Or and 2020 Golden Globes for Best Foreign Picture. Now, it has even begun gathering speculations that it might win Best Picture award at Oscars. Bong Joon Ho’s portrayal of class differences and a hard capitalist society has touched many who watched the movie. Now, the movie is probably all set to turn into a TV show, thanks to HBO Max.

Parasite Series By Adam McKay?
The Hollywood Reporter claims that the talks are still underway, but HBO has come out on top after a heated bid battle with the other streaming giant Netflix. The movie Parasite has earned great success as it earned more than $23 million locally, while $130 million internationally. After going on to win several awards, there are chances that the movie will also appear as a contender for the best picture at the Academy Awards in 2020.
The parasite is a Korean movie which brings class difference to a vividly pragmatic level. A visibly poor family cons their way to replace a staff of a rich family so that everyone can earn. The direction mostly focusses on bringing people, placed at the bottom, to those at the top is a brilliant display of social class inequality.
The success story, which is now turning into a TV series has no plans for the limited series. If the Parasite series is decided to have the English language along with new actors, will this create a similar (or even bigger) impact than the movie?
Adam McKay will be working with Bong Joon Ho for the Parasite series. The man is popular for his work in The Big Short, Vice, and Succession series. All of these titles have earned their fair share of awards, with the TV show recently winning the Globes for the best drama series.
