Mark Ruffalo to head Parasite series on HBO as potential plot details are revealed

The movie itself hid some clues as to what the show will be about.

We've known for a while now that Adam McKay is reteaming with HBO - hot off their success with Succession - for a series adaptation of the Best Picture-winning Parasite, and now it looks like none other than The Hulk himself will be heading up the show.

Collider are reporting that Mark Ruffalo has been approached about the role, even as HBO stated: "The HBO limited series inspired by Parasite is in the early stages of development, and to speculate on any characters or casting is wildly premature."

The potential six-episode series may well expand on some of the smaller details that viewers of the movie may have been left wondering about.

(Some minor spoilers ahead.)

When speaking with The Wrap, director Bong Joon-ho said the following:

"When the original housekeeper Mun Gwang (Lee Jung Eun) comes back in the late night, something happened to her face. Even her husband asked about it but she never answered. I know why she had the bruises on her face. I have a story for that, and aside from that, why does she know the existence of this bunker? What relationship does she have with that architect to know of this bunker? So I have all these hidden stories that I have stored."

With a wider release of Parasite about to making it available to watch in more cinemas around the country (more on that here), now is the best time to catch up on the movie that literally everyone seems to be talking about, even if the director did jokingly say that he expects the series to arrive on HBO in "maybe 2027".
