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.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

Your forceful personality makes people sit up and take notice of you. This is a great time to show off your expert knowledge. Demonstrating a command for facts and figures will result in a teaching or media position. Make sure you don't impose this air of authority at home. Your family won't appreciate being ordered around. You may be a superstar in intellectual circles, but you're just another relative on the domestic front. Don't bristle at your loved ones' irreverence. It's good for your ego.More
