As the world eagerly awaits season two of Squid Game, reports are beginning to emerge that Netflix is pursuing an American remake of one of their most popular shows.
Given the cultural impact Squid Game has had, it is unsurprising that the studio wishes to explore as many other avenues as possible in order to capitalise. Squid Game’s first season scored Netflix some of their highest numbers since Stranger Things and spawned a litany of controversy, memes and even Halloween costumes.
Initial reports suggest that Hollywood heavyweight David Fincher is looking toward producing the remake and possibly directing the pilot episode.
As previously stated, reports are very sparse, and it is entirely possible that nothing may come of the project. The online reaction to the initial news has been almost overwhelmingly negative, meaning it’s a possibility that Netflix could nix the project altogether.
We will keep our ear to the ground for any further developments and report them as soon as we can.
