Scorsese awaits next film by 'Parasite' director

The director of South Korea's first Oscar-winning film says Martin Scorsese reached out and told him to 'get back to work.'

When Bong Joon-ho's Parasite won this year's Oscar for best picture he gave a shout out to Scorsese with a quote he says inspired him as a film student: "The personal is the most creative." In a Wednesday news conference with the Parasite cast-Bong told reporters Scorsese sent him a letter.

(SOUNDBITE) (Korean) OSCAR-WINNING SOUTH KOREAN FILM DIRECTOR, BONG JOON-HO, SAYING: "I read it a few hours ago.

It was an honour for me.

It's a personal letter to me, so I don't think it's appropriate to tell you about its content, but in the last sentence, he said: 'You did a great job.

Take a break, but just a little bit and get back to work, as everyone, including myself, is awaiting your next movie'." Parasite was the first foreign-language film to win the best-picture Oscar in the Academy Awards' history.

It tells the tale of two South Korean familes -- one rich, one poor -- in a frank reflection of the country's wealth divide.

How do you top all that?

For now, Bong says he's working on two projects -- one is more mysterious -- he describes it as being based on a, quote, 'fearful' incident in Seoul.

The other: a 'Parasite' series for HBO.

(SOUNDBITE) (Korean) OSCAR-WINNING SOUTH KOREAN FILM DIRECTOR, BONG JOON-HO, SAYING: "The HBO project is about the core theme of Parasite, which is the wealth disparity of our time.

Like the original film, it will dig deeper into that, in the form of black comedy and crime drama." Koreans have been celebrating Parasite since the big win.

Local cinemas and TV channels have been re-running the film and showing off his past work, like 2013's 'Snowpiercer'.
