Apple TV+ will unleash their adaptation of Stephen King Lisey’s Story soon. And today, The Shining and The Stand author says that he now feels that there’s no longer a story he’s written that would be considered “unfilmable.”

King said during a TCA event via THR: “Be all the way in, as much as possible, or be all the way out. There’s been a lot of projects [where it’s like] step back, write books, maybe something will come along, a passion project, and this was that, a passion project… [I don’t] think anything is unfilmable now.”

A series of unsettling events causes Lisey to face memories of her marriage to the famous novelist that she has deliberately blocked out of her mind.

Larrain (Jackie) directs from a series of scripts by King himself based on his novel. King, Moore, and Abrams executive produce with Ben Stephenson.
