Deadline reports the The Regulators Will be adapted into a movie by Bohemia Group.

Bohemia Group has optioned film rights to Stephen King’s bestseller The Regulators, tapping George Cowan to adapt the Western horror-thriller for the big screen.

The film adaptation of The Regulators is being shepherded by Bohemia Group’s Executive Vice-President, producer Justin Ross, who helped develop the King-approved script with Cowan.

“I’m delighted that the excitement of ‘The Regulators’ is coming to the screen,” King told Deadline. “This is going to be good.”

“We could not be more thrilled than to be working with the prolific Stephen King and his team on this project,” said Bohemia Group’s CEO, Susan Ferris. “The novel’s themes and characters resonate so powerfully, and we are looking forward to making an incredible film.”

“Working with Stephen King is a long-time wish fulfilled,” added Ross. “Susan and George and I look forward to doing the novel and its author proud.”

King Testifying Against Merge

APNews reports about King testifying against the merge of Penguin Random House and Simon & Schuster.


As the Justice Department bids to convince a federal judge that the proposed merger of Penguin Random House and Simon & Schuster would damage the careers of some of the most popular authors, it is leaning in part on the testimony of a writer who has thrived like few others: Stephen King.

King has willingly — even eagerly — placed himself in opposition to Simon & Schuster, his longtime publisher. He was not chosen by the government just for his fame, but for his public criticism of the $2.2 billion deal announced in late 2021, joining two of the world’s biggest publishers into what rival CEO Michael Pietsch of Hachette Book Group has called a “gigantically prominent” entity.

“The more the publishers consolidate, the harder it is for indie publishers to survive,” King tweeted last year.

Q&A About H&S’s Limited Fairy Tale

Yesterday Hodder & Stoughton put up a limited signed edition of FAIRY TALE by Stephen King on their own website for pre-order. A lot of you have had questions about this and I have now the answers for you. Straight from the publisher.

The reason some fans (depending on where they live) weren’t able to order the book is because Hodder & Stoughton don’t have the rights to sell their books in those territories/markets. Nothing else.

The offer was limited to one copy per customer, so if someone ordered more than one book, the publisher will be checking with a view to cancelling duplicate or multiple orders. In this event, those copies will be put back on sale on the site, so keep your eyes peeled.

If you ordered and got two confirmations, one from Shopify and one from Hachette UK, your order is received and accepted, and you’ll get the book once it’s released.

The book will be signed on the page by King himself, not a printed signature or a bookplate.
