More Stephen King News: Under the Dome Heading to HBO; Cell Script Written

Oh, man, Stephen King fans are in heaven right now. Along with the release of his new novel Under the Dome (look for a review soon) has come the news that Dome is heading to HBO. In addition, we now know the tentative title of the eighth installment of King's Dark Tower series as well as getting an update on the status of an adaptation of Cell.

King was in Dundalk, Maryland, yesterday, where he dropped the news that Under the Dome will be an HBO miniseries and that he has written a script for Cell (review here). A video of his Q&A appeared on YouTube, which you can watch below for all the details.


Also, along with pointing us in the direction of the aforementioned video, Lilja's Library ran a quote from King's message board: "Stephen has given me permission to pass along that he has an idea for a new Dark Tower book, the working title of which will be THE WIND THROUGH THE KEYHOLE. He has not yet started this book and anticipates that it will be a minimum of eight months before he is able to begin writing it."

That's a long wait but one that King fans will no doubt be more than willing to endure in order to revisit their favorite characters and storylines.

Keep it here for more on all three projects as it comes.

That's all amazing news. Cell was a questionable book so I don't know if I'll buy the movie.
