Bong Joon Ho Calls Parasite Series ‘Great Genius’
Bong Joon Ho has offered an update on his much-awaited Parasite HBO series. At Cannes Film Festival (via IndieWire), Bong Joon Ho talked about the overarching theme of Parasite series.
He said, “Parasite is a film on wealthy and poor families, and that is a problem everywhere. [The television series] will be something of great genius, I hope. I worked with Adam McKay and he’s figuring out the scenario. We’re going to do it in the United States.” The filmmaker further explained, “The subject continues to have resonance in France and elsewhere. Many of [us] would like to be rich, but I think in all of us there is a fear of becoming poor. I’m involved in the HBO adaptation [of ‘Parasite’]. It will be a black comedy. I’m working in close cooperation with screenwriter McKay. This time I’m giving my input as a producer.”
Bong Joon Ho also revealed that he never expected Parasite to become this successful. He said, “I had no idea that ‘Parasite’ would be a such a global hit. Its success was far beyond my expectations. Though I made it in exactly the same way as normal And I remain unchanged by it. I mean, look at me, I’m exactly the same.”
The Parasite series will not be a remake, but it will tell a new story in the same universe. Details regarding the cast, plot, and release date of HBO’s Parasite series are under the wraps.
