It’s still a bit hard to fathom, but a big-budget adaptation of Stephen King’s multi-dimensional adventure The Dark Tower movie is finally on its way to theaters. Now a photo of one of the series’ iconic moments has emerged.
Better get your calm, peaceful nights of sleep in while you can, because some awesome nightmares are on the horizon. On September 20, you’ll be able to pick up Blu-rays of three memorable Stephen King adaptations: the 1979 miniseries Salem’s Lot; the 1990 miniseries It; and the 1985 horror anthology Cat’s Eye.
The new big-screen adaptation of Stephen King’s It won’t be out until Sept. 2017, but we’re already very curious. Truthfully, we’d already be looking forward to the thing—the book and the 1990 miniseries were both scary as hell—but director Andy Muschietti is killing it with his sneak peeks on Instagram.
No contemporary author has seen his work made into more movies and TV shows than Stephen King (and many more, like The Dark Tower, are in the works). The fact that he’s astonishingly prolific is certainly a contributing factor—as is the fact his works, horror and otherwise, tend to feel cinematic even on the page. But…
Yesterday we got a look at Entertainment Weekly’s cover heralding The Dark Tower, the Stephen King adaptation starring Idris Elba as Roland the Gunslinger and Matthew McConaughey as the Man in Black, as well as the above peek at Elba. Now, a slew of new teaser images from Nikolaj Arcel’s film are up.
The film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower has been shooting for a while now, but most of that was happening in South Africa. This week, the film moved to New York City, and the increase of prying eyes caught a glimpse of Matthew McConaughey as Randall Flagg, the Man in Black.
Andy Muschietti is best-known for the Jessica Chastain-starring horror movie Mama, but that will surely change once his two-part adaptation of Stephen King’s It is released. The director has been posting behind-the-scenes snaps to his Instagram, including a possible peek at the story’s most-feared character.
This entire nearly hour-long conversation between writing luminaries George R. R. Martin and Stephen King is well worth listening to in its entirety, but before that: skip to around 50:08 and hear Martin ask the one question he’s always wanted to put to King. It’s worth it.
Celebrity endorsements have been around for a long time, but it’s usually actors, wrestlers, or athletes who are enduring a photoshoot with a random product. That said, every now and again, it’s a science fiction author who’s promoting something.
There’ll be no filling Tim Curry’s killer-clown shoes, ever, but the new adaptation of Stephen King’s It has still found its Pennywise. It’s an intriguing choice: Bill Skarsgard, star of Netflix mystery series Hemlock Grove. And presumably, given the nature of the role, he’ll be one of few actors to appear in both…
The first photos of Idris Elba on the South African set of The Dark Tower have leaked, and they look great. Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair) is directing the much-anticipated Stephen King adaptation, which stars Elba as the gunslinger and Matthew McConaughey as the man in black.
After a failed pilot in 2011, horror comic Locke & Key is getting another go at small-screen glory. Author Joe Hill himself is penning the new attempt and will be among its executive producers, along with IDW Entertainment and Circle of Confusion, which oversees The Walking Dead and Hulu’s cult drama The Path.
We learned in mid-April that the TV series adaptation of Stephen King’s The Mist—previously a 2007 feature film—was surging forth at Spike TV. Now comes news that a director for the first episode has just been hired, and he’s an odd but maybe ideal choice: Adam Bernstein, who won an Emmy in 2007 for 30 Rock.
Power trio Stephen King, John Cusack, and Samuel L. Jackson—who previously worked on 1408 together—reunited for Cell, an adaptation of King’s apocalyptic tale about a sinister cell phone signal that turns the afflicted into kill-crazy zombies. Tod Williams (Paranormal Activity 2) directs.
Fran Kranz (Dollhouse, Cabin in the Woods) has been cast in The Dark Tower as Pimli—but as a Pimli who doesn’t appear to be quite the same as he appears in the book.
A TV series adaptation of Stephen King’s science fiction-horror novella The Mist has been in the works since at least September, and now there’s more news: it will be coming to Spike TV in 2017.
After spending what felt like forever in limbo, Stephen King’s Dark Tower is finally starting its film production—with Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey as the leads.
One of the very first scenes of 11.22.63 features a character explaining just what he has been doing with the awesome power of time travel: He’s been buying really good, really cheap meat from 1960 and bringing it back to the present to make hamburgers. No other character ever really manages to top that reason.
