Is there anything better than having an A-list director dabbling in our beloved genre? If anything, Martin Scorsese proved that with Shutter Island he could take the most generic and overused twist in film and make it incredibly interesting. That says a lot about the Oscar-winning auteur.
It was confirmed today that Scorsese will in fact get behind the camera for an adaptation of Jo Nesbo’s bestselling mystery novel The Snowman, which is to be penned by World War Z‘s Matthew Michael Carnahan.
The Norwegian novel, which is the seventh entry in Nesbo’s series about detective Harry Hole, is set in Oslo and “concerns a missing woman whose pink scarf is found wrapped around an ominous-looking snowman. As Hole begins his investigation, he discovers that the crime appears to be the work of a serial killer.”
