Stephen King Just Went Off About How Much He Hates The Shining Again
There has been some real garbage movies made from Stephen King books. (Dreamcatcher and Sleepwalkers come to mind.) But no matter how many years pass, the author behind Carrie, Christine and Pet Cemetery still loathes the best-regarded horror movie based on his works. King still can't stand Stanley Kubrick's The Shining.

The Stand Adaptation To Be Three Hours Long, R-Rated
When it comes to most books, the word fans love to use is “miniseries.” Many aren't satisfied by a movie's ability to capture the prose and intricacies of the book, especially so for Stephen King's The Stand. Fans worry that director Josh Boone isn't going to be given the proper license to expand upon King's work, an 823-page monster that has enthralled audiences for decades.

Stephen King's It Movie Adaptation Moves To New Line

Stephen King's Thriller Gerald's Game Gets Handcuffed To Oculus Director Mike Flanagan
Gerald’s Game doesn’t have gigantic monsters or insane action sequences hindering its transition to cinema, but rather a lead character who spends most of the narrative half-naked. That R-rated element will probably be clothed for the actual movie, but it will presumably tell the same story of a married couple’s romantic retreat gone terribly wrong.

Stop Complaining When Books Get Re-Adapted, Sometimes They Should Be
Remakes are unoriginal, pretty much by definition. So it’s not unreasonable for people to complain when it seems like Hollywood is churning out remake after remake. With that said, I think a line needs to be drawn between your standard remake of a popular movie, and a remake of a movie that was based on a book. A remake of an original movie seems like an obvious cash grab.

Samuel L. Jackson Will Fight For Survival With John Cusack In Stephen King's Cell Adaptation
This won’t be the first time Jackson and Cusack co-star in a King adaptation, as they were both in Mikael Håfström’s underseen 2007 horror mystery 1408>, though Jackson’s role was limited to one major scene. I can’t wait to see them share the screen together for most of a feature.

Ron Howard Says The Dark Tower Adaptation Isn't Dead After All
The Dark Tower is something that we’re still working on,” Howard said in the Empire Podcast. “We’ve all taken a vow of silence about the progress, the headway, what we think our timetable is, because I don’t think I realized how much media interest there was in the title and how much excitement there was.”

Stephen King's Joyland Option Picked Up By The Help's Tate Taylor
It's a risk to option a book that hasn't even hit shelves yet, but it's one that paid off for The Help director Tate Taylor, who picked up the option for Kathryn Stockett's book before it became a hit. When it comes to authors putting out a popular book, Stephen King's probably a pretty safe bet. But on the other hand, adapting one of King's books for the big (or small) screen is a lofty task.

Paranormal Activity 2 Director The Latest To Take On Stephen King's Cell
News of a Stephen King adaptation generally draws extreme reactions - either disgust or clueless joy. I’ll cop to being part of that latter group, though my enthusiasm is always kept in check by the sheer number of of projects he regularly has in development. As fans lay in wait for further development of 11/22/63, The Stand and The Dark Tower, at least one long-gestating project is starting up again.
