A look in the rearview mirror

Posted: January 4, 2012, 15:59
2011 is over and 2012 is here and as usual when we have a new year it's time for a look in the rearview mirror. Here are some of the headlines that topped the news in early January some years ago.

1 year ago everyone talked about who would be the best Roland Deschain; Javier Bardem or Viggo Mortensen

2 years ago King did some narrating on Shooter Jennings album Black Ribbons

3 years ago we looked forward to Road Rage, King and his son Joe Hill's first published collaboration.

4 years ago everyone was waiting for Duma Key to be released later on in January.

5 years ago The Mist was about to start shooting.

6 years ago we could read excerpts from Lisey's Story.

7 years ago we got this update about King's doings from the moderator of the official board.

Response from Moderator: Most recently he’s been working again on the project with John Mellencamp that had been put on the back burner while he was doing The Dark Tower, Kingdom Hospital and Faithful. He’s also written a couple of short stories and a novel.

8 years ago Kingdom Hospital and TNT's remake of Salem's Lot was hot topics. Everyone guessed who wrote the tie-in (to Kingdom Hospital) book The Journals of Eleanor Druse.

9 years agowe got casting news for King's Rose Red miniseries.

10 years ago we could read reports about Frank Muller (narrator of many King books) horrible accident.

11 years ago Dreamcatcher was being promoted for its March release.

12 years ago It was reported that King signed a 3 book deal with Scribner. This was big news by the time since we didn't know if King would write any more books after his accident.

13 years ago no one know that King 6 month later would come very close to die in a car accident. Thank God he didn't.
