Here are some info from King's official message board about a chapter for Hearts in Atlantis and also a hit that King is hard at work at new projects.

I read the intro of "Low men in yellow coats" present in "Stephen King goes to the Movies" and it mentions one chapter King didn't write yet for Hearts in Atlantis. It's called "The house on Benefit Street" and it's the story of what happened to Carol (Bobby childhood's girlfriend).

Any news about this? Does King plan to write it?

Answer (Moderator):
Steve got the idea to do this 2 or 3 years ago, I think. He had asked me to get the audio versions of Hearts in Atlantis to listen to while he drove to Florida to get him back in the groove and then planned to begin writing it when he arrived. I don't know what happened between November and January, but he started writing another project instead. I'd asked him recently if he still planned to write it but he wasn't sure if he would as he has other projects (it's killing me that I can't say anything yet ) he's working on that are taking priority.
