Hi everyone, Bryan here…

It-SXSW-1-1

Clowns don’t scare me, however Tim Curry as Pennywise made me not sleep at night for a long time. It might have been his jovial, yet sadistic nature, sharp teeth, or yellow eyes, but it left a permanent mark on me forever. Other clowns just make me laugh. ‘IT‘ was a TV Movie based on Stephen King’s novel that came out 1990. It was a terrifying event that left some iconic images in my head for years to  come.

The name of Stephen King is one that is mentioned often, be it as the author of a book, or even describing a new author as having “King-like qualities”, we’ve all heard the phrase”Based on the Stephen King novel” in front of a film title and we’ve heard the same phrase in the description of a TV series. It’s the last one that I’ll be using today. ‘The Mist’ is getting a series order at Spike and it’s based on the Stephen King novel.

Director Josh Boone, from ‘The Fault In Our Stars‘ is diving into the deep end for his next project. This could mean a few things in the world of film-making, I could be talking about his announced writing/directing gig for ‘X-Men: The New Mutants‘, but I’m not. I’m talking about not one, but two Stephen King adaptations Boone is taking on, with one of them being ‘The Stand‘. Crawl before you run, young padawan. Anyhow, the other adaptation is what’s in the news today, Boone is looking to make King’s 2014 book ‘Revival‘ the current project getting his attention.

Stephen King has some amazing story-telling abilities and this makes his work a goldmine for both film and TV adaptations.’The Mist‘ has been made into a movie is looking at becoming a TV series now. Fans of ‘Under The Dome‘ may be critical and a little suspicious of how this will play out after the cancellation of that series, also a King property.

There had to be a stumbling block as far as the re-boot for Stephen King’s ‘It’ is concerned and losing the director and only slated star sounds like it’s occurred. I’m hopeful Cary Fukunaga’s departure as director is nothing but a good sign for the film which, the original, is one of the building blocks of my childhood.

Fans of the brilliant writer Stephen King get excited when we see a new film being made based on one of his brilliant tomes. We got creeped out by our dead pets in ‘Pet Sematary‘, our healthy fear of  clowns graduated into a full on psychosis after seeing Pennywise as ‘It‘, groaned in pain when we saw ‘Misery‘ on the big screen, in short, we laughed, we cried, we cringed and we loved every minute of it. One novel that has had trouble making it’s way to the silver screen is King’s western epic better known as the collective work of ‘The Gunslinger‘.

Bruce_Willis

Broadway and Hollywood have shared the same actors since the beginning of film, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise when a big screen actor makes the transition to the Great White Way, but on occasion, it is when it’s an actor I never really considered for that format, tonight’s shocker comes in the form of Bruce Willis.

Few authors can raise the hackles on the back of our necks from just hearing their name, but Stephen King is in a category of his own. He’s scared the crap out of us since ‘Carrie‘ in 1976 and hasn’t stopped since. While we have a huge number of excellent films based on King’s works, sometimes his vision is incredibly detailed and hard to adapt to celluloid with the same scale of awe inspiring affect. Several filmmakers have seen this to be achingly true, just look at how difficult ‘The Dark Tower‘ has been for production. Hopefully, we will see that one brought to fruition soon. In the meantime, another volume from King has successfully made the jump from awesome idea to completed film.

Hi, Bryan Here….

John Cusack (Mike Enslin) and Samuel L. Jackson (Mr. Olin) star in Mikael Håfström's 1408

Remember that book Stephen King wrote a few years ago that had a couple of people trying to escape the zombie-like apocalypse, due to a mobile phone signal being emitted everywhere that turned people into zombie-like killers? Well, they’ve been trying to make a movie adaptation of that for years now, and once upon a time, Eli Roth was attached to it, but that’s no longer the case. That film and book is called ‘Cell‘.

Hi, Bryan Here….

We have previously reported that Stephen King’s ‘It’ is being remade into a theatrical film.  It will be a two part film series with Cary Fukunaga directing.  Fukunaga is most known for directing ‘Jane Eyre’.  Fukunaga will also co-write the script with Chase Palmer who adapted Frank Herbert’s ‘Dune’ recently.  Seth Grahame-Smith will be producing the picture according to THR.  I’m on the fence about this project.  I don’t have high hopes for this considering the crew.

Hi Bryan Here…

I was about 13 years old when Stephen King’s The Stand debuted on primetime television back in 1994.  It has been one of my favorite Stephen King books as well as made for tv adaptations of king’s work to date.  Plus it introduced me to the acting talent of Gary Sinise.  Back then and even today, I thought that The Stand was too BIG for just TV.  I mean it is such an epic story that deserves a huge budget and a silver screen opportunity.  Well it seems like some execs have the same feeling.
