Martin Scorsese – who most recently directed Shutter Island and Hugo – continues to walk the fine line between thriller and horror as he is in early talks to direct Working Title’s adaptation of Jo Nesbo’s bestselling mystery novel The Snowman, reports Variety.
Matthew Michael Carnahan (World War Z) is in talks to adapt the Norwegian novel, which is the seventh entry in Nesbo’s series about detective Harry Hole. “Set in Oslo, “The Snowman” 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.”
