Two more adaptations are on the way in various forms from the mind of one of the horror genre’s most prolific and respected authors, the great Stephen King, and we’ve got the scoop on both of ’em for you right here in one space! Dig it!
According to Deadline “Lost” writer Brian K. Vaughan has been tapped to pen Showtime’s drama series adaptation of Stephen King’s 2009 novel Under the Dome from DreamWorks Television.
The supernatural thriller revolves around locals at a Maine vacation spot who battle one another when a force field suddenly surrounds their town and cuts them off from the rest of the world. DreamWorks’ Steven Spielberg and Stacey Snider originally secured the rights to King’s novel shortly after it was published in November 2009.
In other King related news Variety is also reporting that in a major indie financing deal, Joni Sighvattson’s Palomar Pictures (Killer Elite, Brothers) has launched a partnership with Grosvenor Park on a package of three films — a pair of non-horror remakes and a Stephen King adaptation.
Said adaptation is none other than Rose Madder, based on King’s 1995 fantasy novel. The story has been adapted by Naomi Sheridan (In America) and is based on a woman who’s on the run from her abusive husband and is able to travel into a painting.
Look for more on both of these projects soon!
