Martin Scorsese Lines Up To Make Jo Nesbo’s Snowman
by Mike Noyes on November 25, 2011

With Martin Scorsese’s Hugo now in theaters, the Oscar-winning is already looking to his next project.

The New York auteur will again tackle a novel adaptation with Norwegian author Jo Nesbo’s The Snowman.

Scorsese had been interested in the project for a while now, but Nesbo has given final approval for the director to adapt his story. Nesbo also added that he will not insist the film be shot on location in Olso, where the book is set.

The Snowman will be a return to the all familiar crime thriller for Scorsese. The novel focuses on Norwegian detective Harry Hole, described as “an anti-authoritarian, anti-sobriety cop,” who investigates particularly gruesome killings. In The Snowman, the seventh book in the Harry Hole series, a young boy finds his mother’s pink scarf wrapped around the neck of a snowman. Hole realizes she is the latest victim of a serial killer and sets out to catch him.

Screenwriter Matthew Michael Carnahan (World War Z), will adapt the novel.
