Scorsese to direct The Snowman

Martin Scorsese will direct The Snowman

Martin Scorsese is set to direct the big-screen version of The Snowman.

The Oscar-winning filmmaker has confirmed he will take control of Jo Nesbo's best-selling crime thriller, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The Norwegian author, who reportedly had to approve Martin for the job, didn't insist that the film had to be set in Oslo, Norway, as in the book.

Martin - whose new film Hugo opens in cinemas on December 2 - has a number of other projects in the pipeline, including Jesuit priest drama Silence And The Irishman, The Wolf Of Wall Street, a remake of The Gambler, and a biopic on Frank Sinatra.

The Snowman is the seventh book in the Harry Hole detective series.

The film is still in early stages, and there have been no details over who would play the anti-authoritarian and alcohol-loving cop, who investigates some gruesome killings seemingly connected by a snowman.
