Last night was an amazing night for Bong Joon-ho’s dark comedy thriller Parasite, bringing home four awards including Best Picture, and HBO’s development on the limited series adaptation is reportedly taking a big step forward as Mark Ruffalo (Avengers: Endgame) is being eyed to star in the series, according to Collider.

The outlet notes that HBO has said that some casting reports are “premature,” but that multiple sources have confirmed interest in casting the 52-year-old MCU veteran and that Joon-ho has reached out to Ruffalo himself for the lead role, with both sides expressing interest in striking a deal.

The movie Parasite follows two families: the Park Family, who are the picture of aspirational wealth, and the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist, to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide “indispensable” luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims’ newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks.

Parasite is a peculiar tale about two families who are worlds apart yet somewhat alike, portraying a striking reality of the world we live in. The film stars Lee Sun-Kyun (A Hard Day), Cho Yeo-Jeong (Obsessed), Choi Woo-Shik (Okja), Park So-Dam (The Priests), and Chang Hyae-Jin (Poetry).
