Scorsese awaits next film by Oscar-winning 'Parasite' director

Scorsese awaits next film by Oscar-winning 'Parasite' director”

Bong Joon-ho recently revealed that he received a heartwarming letter from his mentor Martin Scorsese, post his historic win for Parasite at Oscars 2020.

The tale of the wealthy Parks and the poor Kims became the first non-English language movie to win this year's Oscar for best picture, and three more, sparking debate over a growing social divide in Asia's fourth-largest economy.

Bong additional, "Regardless of whether I gained the awards, it was meaningful and pure joy that the world audience responded to my perform".

"He told me to take rest, but just a little bit of it and get back to work, as he is awaiting my next movie", Bong said. But nothing that's come before has been remotely as successful as "Parasite", a profoundly South Korean film shot in the Korean language. The film won best global feature film as well.

As Bong Joon-ho accepted the third Oscar for the night for his masterpiece of a film, Parasite, the South Korean filmmaker made sure to give a major shoutout to his fellow nominees - Martin Scorsese for The Irishman, Quentin Tarantino for Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, Sam Mendes for 1917 and Todd Phillips for Joker.

Asked about such proposals, Bong joked, "I hope people will talk about such things after I die".

Distributors had mounted an intense promotional campaign ahead of the Academy Awards, Bong said, involving at least 600 media interviews and 100 question-and-answer sessions - at one point giving actor Song Kang-ho nosebleeds from exhaustion.

"We have smoothly taken the first step with HBO", said Bong, while denying reports that Mark Ruffalo and Swinton have been finalized as cast members.

"The TV adaptation of "Snowpiercer" is planned to air in May, but since we started talking about it in 2014 or 2015, it took about five years".
