When Oscars 2020 rolled in, we all were in for a pleasant shock when Bong Joon-ho did the unthinkable! His ambitious project Parasite swept the 92nd Academy Awards with four Oscars, including Best Picture, which was a first for a non-English film. Parasite also took home the prize for International Feature Film, Best Directing for Bong and Best Original Screenplay for Bong and Han Jin-won. It comes as no surprise then that HBO is working on a potential limited series, based on the Oscar-winning film.

It will be Bong and The Big Short (2015) director Adam McKay, who will be key aspects in the limited series, which is said to be 5-6 episodes. News broke out immediately after Oscars 2020, that Mark Ruffalo was being considered for the lead role in the Parasite limited series and confirming the rumours was the Avengers: Endgame actor himself during C2E2 in Chicago. "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 would 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," Mark shared, via ComicBook.
