MARTIN SCORSESE Will Direct THE SNOWMAN

According to THR, Martin Scorsese is officially attached to direct the The Snowman, the film adaptation of Jo Nesbo’s international bestselling novel of the same name.

Scorsese has been circling the project for awhile now, but Nesbo had final say when it came to approving a director and he has done so, confirming with a Swedish newspaper Scorsese will direct an English-language adaptation of his work.

Matthew Michael Carnahan (World War Z, State of Play, The Kingdom) is writing the script and Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner are producing.


The novel features Norwegian detective Henry Hole, who is described as an anti-authoritarian, anti-sober cop, who investigates particularly gruesome killings. Snowman is the seventh novel that features Hole and follows a son who finds his mother’s scarf wrapped around a snowman, which leads Hole to believe she is the latest victim of Norway’s first serial killer.

Another film adaptation of a Nesbo novel, Headhunters has become one of the most successful films in Norway and was a huge hit at this year’s Fantastic Fest here in the states.

Scorsese’s latest film, Hugo is his first family film and it has been getting rave reviews with critics saying it’s Scorsese’s love letter to the history of film.

Hugo opens in limited theaters tomorrow.
