Last month, Parasite made history at the Academy Awards by being the first foreign-language film to earn Best Picture while also taking home Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Foreign Language Film. And it didn’t take long for HBO to announce a limited series spin-off based upon the feature film with rumours of Mark Ruffalo in talks for a major role.
Now, during a panel at a C2E2 event in Chicago (via ComicBook), Ruffalo revealed the rumours of him in talks to star in the upcoming series are true and is currently waiting on the script.
“We’ve met. I love him [Bong Joon-ho], I love that movie,” Ruffalo shared. “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.”
While he didn’t provide confirmation, Ruffalo had previously addressed the Parasite rumours after the Oscars and gave his initial thoughts on the news:
“That’d be amazing. He’s [Bong] amazing. I love him. His speech last night was incredible he made an amazing movie and I’d be honoured 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.”
