Bong Expands On HBO “Parasite” Series Goals

Speaking with THR, Bong confirms the series will feature many stories regarding each of the film’s characters – once again suggesting the original cast could well be involved in the series.

It seems the show, which Bong will executive produce with Adam McKay, will serve as a platform for him to explore side storylines he previously mapped out but didn’t have time to include in a feature narrative:

“With cinema, you’re limited to a two-hour running time. But there were so many stories that I thought of that could happen in between the sequences you see in the film, and some background stories for each character.

I really wanted to explore those ideas freely with a five- or six-hour film. You know, with Bergman’s ‘Fanny and Alexander,’ there’s a theatrical version and there’s a TV version. So with the TV series for ‘Parasite,’ I think we’ll be able to create a high-quality, expanded film.”

The comments come as a black-and-white version of the film is set to screen in select theatres in New York and Los Angeles next week.
