Bong Joon Ho and Adam McKay are bringing ‘Parasite’ to HBO in the form of a limited series

Parasite series International Feature Film Oscars
NEON

In a rather unfortunate but not particularly surprising development, THR is reporting that HBO has won an intense bidding war against Netflix to acquire the rights to adapt Bong Joon Ho’s 2019 feature film Parasite into a limited series.

While details about the project are still relatively unknown, we do know that Joon Ho is attached to the series as an executive producer along with Adam McKay. Beyond that, though, it looks like specifics are being kept tightly under wraps for the time being.

Indeed, the fact that Joon Ho will be a part of the project in some capacity is promising, to say the least, but the fact Parasite can’t stand alone on its own as the masterwork that it is and has to be remade for American audiences in a limited series format is pretty damn shameful.

Of course this kind of shit was inevitable the moment Parasite turned into the global, cultural phenomenon that it has become; there’s certainly no doubt about that. But surely no one in their right in mind is clamoring for an English-language miniseries version of a movie that hasn’t even been out in America for more than three months, right?

If that is the case, then this quote from Joon Ho at the Golden Globes is even more relevant now than it was before: “Once you overcome the one-inch tall barrier of subtitles, you will be introduced to so many more amazing films.”

Netflix’s ‘Locke & Key’ trailer reveals the long-awaited adaptation of the graphic novels

Locke & Key
NETFLIX

The streaming wars will only be getting more intense in 2020 and Netflix really appears to be stepping up their game heading into the first quarter of the new year as evidenced by all of the trailers they’ve released today, including this one for the first season of Locke & Key.

Based on the best-selling graphic novels by Joe Hill, Locke & Key follows three siblings who move to their ancestral home following the death (OK, murder) of their father and discover a set of magical keys that grant them with a wide array of powers and abilities.

Little do the siblings know, however, that a sinister, demonic entity occupies their home as well and is deadset on taking the keys for itself and will stop at nothing to obtain them.

Carlton Cuse, Aron Eli Coleite, and Meredith Averill developed the series, which stars Jackson Robert Scott, Connor Jessup, Emilia Jones, Sherri Saum, Griffin Gluck, and Darby Stanchfield.

As someone with little to no knowledge about the source material, I think this looks pretty great! The synopsis sounds intriguing enough and the whole visual aesthetic of the show is right in my wheelhouse; consider me sold.

Locke & Key hits Netflix on February 7.
