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."

Firestarter Remake Starts Filming In June?

Posted: April 13, 2021, 15:44:34

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.
