Cemeterty Dance released the cover for Gwendy’s Final Task today as well as the release date, February 15, 2022.
When Gwendy Peterson was twelve, a mysterious stranger named Richard Farris gave her a mysterious box for safekeeping. It offered treats and vintage coins, but it was dangerous. Pushing any of its seven colored buttons promised death and destruction.
Years later, the button box entered Gwendy’s life again. A successful novelist and a rising political star, she was once again forced to deal with the temptation that box represented.
Now, evil forces seek to possess the button box and it is up to Senator Gwendy Peterson to keep it from them. At all costs. But where can you hide something from such powerful entities?
In Gwendy’s Final Task, “horror giants” (Publishers Weekly) Stephen King and Richard Chizmar take us on a journey from Castle Rock to another famous cursed Maine city to the MF-1 space station, where Gwendy must execute a secret mission to save the world. And, maybe, all worlds.
Vanity Fair released the news today that Lisey's Story will premier on June 4.
"I wanted to say something about marriage, about long marriage, and about celebrity and about the side of lives that are public and the sides of lives that are private—and the door between those two worlds.
In that sense, it’s autobiographical, but only in the sense that you take what you know as a framework and then build something that’s totally fictional on that. For one thing, I haven’t died yet, but I did come back from almost dying when I had pneumonia. And they told Tabby, ‘Prepare for the worst.’ King in Vanity Fair
Apperently the show plunges the viewers into the middle of its narrative and expects them to make their own sense of it, even as the characters do the same.
"I don’t want to put anybody off. It’s not a simple story. It’s not a to b to c. You hope that the audience will understand that there are secrets here—there are really big secrets—and hope they’ll stick with the show, find those things, and unravel them. I think everything becomes clear fairly soon." King in Vanity Fair
According to Screen Rant the remake of Firestarter might begin filming this June. The information comes from an interview with producer Akiva Goldsman. Here is what he said:
Firestarter is one of the last great, either unmade or un-remade, Stephen King novels that have become classics. There are things I will never forget from the original movie. But it diverged from the book significantly. So Scott Teems — who is a really wonderful writer — wrote this terrific script which is much closer to the novel in both incident and tone. We start shooting, I want to say, in 12 weeks. Firestarter was always some of Stephen's most intimate and affective horror, and I think pyrokinesis is a really fascinating idea when it comes to the expression of hidden feelings.
What do Stephen King and big corgi butts have in common? Well, more than you might think. King do have a corgi, The Thing of Evil, and now he has also written a foreword to a book called The Little book of Big Corgi Butts. Get your copy here.
This April 23-25, a selection of Stephen King movies will be available to watch online for free. Hosted by Canadian film production company Barker Street Cinema, the virtual festival, called Stephen King Rules, will screen 25 submissions by filmmakers from all over the world, many of which have never been seen by a global audience before.
Here are my thoughts about a small book called A Little Silver Book: Black House
Chizmar and Schaech have produced an interesting script, but unfortunately it was doomed to fail, at least for now. Why? Well there are two reasons.
