Back in October, we reported that director Martin Scorsese is in talks to direct The Snowman, an adaptation of Jo Nesbo's novel. Today we have word that Martin Scorsese has officially signed on to direct the film.

The novel centers on Harry Hole, a hard-drinking Norwegian detective who investigates a series of grisly murders. The scarf of one victim is found on a bizarre snowman, who at times appears to be staring into her family's house.

Martin Scorsese will direct The Snowman from an adapted screenplay by Matthew Michael Carnahan (World War Z). Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner will produce for Working Title Films.

It is said author Jo Nesbo had to sign off on Martin Scorsese directing this adaptation. Jo Nesbo is also not insisting that the movie be filmed in Oslo, Norway, where the novel is set. The Snowman is the seventh novel in Jo Nesbo's Harry Hole book series.

The Snowman is in development . The film is directed by Tomas Alfredson.

    Eh...I know he's known for the crime genre, and this is right up that alley, but I actually prefer his other works more. Aside from GoodFellas. Hugo is different from his usually routine and that's what I like about it. So far anyway. I may end up seeing The Snowman when it comes up, but I can't say I'm looking forward to it right now.

    I feel like David Fincher should be directing this, but Scorcese can do no wrong.
