We already know that HBO is working on a limited series based on Oscar-winning South Korean film Parasite. What's new? They reportedly have their eyes set on a potential lead star in the form of Mark Ruffalo!
While it's still early to confirm the news, it doesn't mean the Avengers star can't share his thoughts about it. "That'd be amazing," Mark told TMZ.
He went on to praise Parasite director Bong Joon Ho. "He's amazing. I love him. His speech last night (at the Oscars) was incredible, he made an amazing movie and I'd be honored to be able to play something in that. It's so beautiful. You know how it is nowadays, nothing's done until it's done but maybe one day. It'd be cool to be a part of."
The Parasite series is said to be an extended English version of the film and will tell stories not shown in its two-hour running time. Bong Joon Ho will still be on board, working with producer Adam McKay.
