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
There's movement on the feature adaptation of Stephen King's It, and we mean that somewhat literally. The anticipated project, which has been in the works for years, is being moved from Warner Bros. to the studios's New Line division. A two-movie adaptation is planned.

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.

John Cusack And Stephen King Are Teaming Up For Cell Adaptation
Viewed from a certain angle, the 2007 John Cusack/ Stephen King collaboration, 1408, was a raging success. It grossed more than one hundred and thirty million dollars worldwide, and it actually got well above average reviews. In fact, it almost broke 80% on Rotten Tomatoes. Viewed from another angle, however, 1408 was a gigantic disappointment.

Sinister Director Scott Derrickson To Direct Adaptation Of Stephen King's The Breathing Method
While I didn't like Scott Derrickson's latest film, Sinister, because of its overdone plot, it's actually a very competently directed movie. Even when the story wasn't bringing the scares, the filmmaker was able to create a terrific, creepy atmosphere using smart camera placement and movement. He seems to have a knack for horror and just needs a proper story to tell. Well, he's going to one of the masters of the genres to find one.
