HBO will take viewers into the world of the critically acclaimed, Academy Award-winning horror Parasite with a new series that will be an original story, Discussing Film states in a Tweet.
Avengers actor Mark Ruffalo has confirmed that the rumors of his involvement are true and that he is set to star in a lead role. He made the following statement, “We’ve met, I love him [Bong Joon-ho], I love that movie. I might be playing the father in Parasite on a television show. I‘d love to do it. We’re sort of waiting on the script and all that, but yeah, that’s pretty much true and in the works.”
In the 2019 film, “The Park Family are the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist, to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide “indispensable” luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims’ newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks.”
