Tilda Swinton is one of those actors who gets automatic respect for anything she does. It can be a commercial for toilet cleaner and people will still talk about the artistic merit. She is only good. So, whenever he exits a project, there’s always sadness, especially when the project is as anticipated as HBO’s adaptation of “Parasite.”
According to an interview with Variety, it appears that Tilda Swinton is no longer attached to the HBO series adaptation of Bong Joon Ho’s “Parasite.” Originally announced as part of the cast shortly after the series was revealed, Tilda Swinton did not talk much about the project. To be honest, there hasn’t been much talk about the project, in general, over the past year. Well, maybe it’s for a good reason, as it appears Swinton is no longer involved.

“I didn’t think I’d be a part of it, but I’m so happy to be a cheerleader,” Swinton said.
The “Parasite” series is produced by Adam McKay and Bong Joon Ho, but not much is known about the plot. It doesn’t seem like it will be a direct adaptation of the movie, but maybe something else entirely. The series is expected to star Mark Ruffalo, but again, it’s not certain what the show’s status is at this point, however.
Hopefully, the buzz around the series hasn’t waned enough for HBO to put the kibosh on the adaptation. As crazy as it may seem to want to bring “Parasite” to American audiences as a limited series, it’s something that works with the right people. People like Ruffalo and Swinton.
We just have to wait and see what happens.
