The Stand announced

Posted: June 1, 2008, 21:07
Yesterday Marvel announced their new King project and it didn’t come as a big surprise that it’s The Stand that’s getting adapted. The comic will be edited by Bill Rosemann who also brings with him an impressive pool of talent to produce this top notch adaptation. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa handles scripting duties while Mike Perkins draws, inks and provides variant covers. Colorist Laura Martin, letterer Chris Eliopolus and cover artist Lee Berjemo round out this creative juggernaut.

Dolan's Cadillac on the move

Posted: June 1, 2008, 00:29
Shooting has begun on Dolan's Cadillac:

Shooting began earlier this week on Dolan's Cadillac in Regina and Moose Jaw, Canada. Based on the story by Stephen King, the cast includes Christian Slater, Wes Bentley and Emmanuelle Vaugier.

Contrary to an initial report that Erik Canuel at the wheel of this psychological thriller, director Jeff Beesley is now directing from a script by Richard Dooling.

"The audience is in for a treat," says executive producer Kevin DeWalt. "We've assembled an incredibly talented cast and a highly skilled crew and are ready to deliver a quality film that will exceed audience expectations." Ellen Wander, executive producer, adds, "The transition from page to screen will not disappoint. This story is one of vengeance, Stephen King style."

Here's an official synopsis provided to Shock by production entity Minds Eye Entertainment: Tom Robinson (Wes Bentley) is a peaceful, law-abiding schoolteacher until his wife Elizabeth (Emmanuelle Vaugier) accidentally witnesses a murder. Jimmy Dolan (Christian Slater), Las Vegas¹ most ruthless and untouchable mob boss, never leaves behind a witness. Haunted by the ghost of his wife, Robinson transforms himself into an obsessed vengeance machine, pushing himself beyond the breaking point of mind, body and spirit. When the two men finally meet deep in the heart of the desert, Dolan's Cadillac climaxes with an amazing test of wills the ultimate duel. The Cadillac, which has been Dolan's armor, may just as easily become his tomb.

Bag of Bones in northern Michigan

Posted: May 14, 2008, 01:15
Location news about Bag of Bones:

Stephen King: Filming soon at a northern Michigan location near you

Just a month after Gov. Jennifer Granholm signed the new film incentive law aimed at luring Hollywood to Michigan, a movie production company is scouting locations here for the next Stephen King movie.

Rick Hert, executive director of the West Michigan Tourist Association, confirmed Tuesday that he is assisting the State Film Office in finding a remote “time kissed” cabin on a lake, surrounded by tall trees, for King’s characteristic mayhem to be filmed. Hert put the word out to area realtors and the Leelanau Chamber of Commerce and was deluged with replies.

“We had just an outpouring of location offers,” Hert said. “I sent four locations that we think are strong, one that is very strong, back to the State Film Office and now we’re just waiting to hear back from the production company.”

Todd Stachnik said he submitted his family's Leelanau County cottage as a possible location because, “it would bring great publicity to the place and would help our community at large,” but hasn’t heard back.

The production does still have a hush-hush quality about it. When asked whether or not the leading location was in Grand Traverse, Leelanau, or Benzie County, Hert would only say, “Perhaps.”

Hert would say that the King work that was being made into a movie is his 1998 novel, “Bag of Bones.” The plot centers around a novelist with writer’s block who moves into his summer house, oddly named “Sara Laughs,” and is besieged by ghosts.

Gov. Granholm signed the film incentive package, which her office says is the most “aggressive” in the nation, into law April 7. Specifically, the new law provides a 40-percent refundable or transferable tax credit for producing films in Michigan, with an added 2 percent rebate for films produced in core communities.

The new law also provides a 25 percent tax credit for film and digital media infrastructure investments for such activities as building studios or purchasing equipment.

No fundraiser

Posted: May 14, 2008, 01:13
Maine fundraiser postponed after King's remarks on military

A Bangor fundraiser featuring three best-selling novelists for Senate candidate Tom Allen has been postponed in the aftermath of a controversy surrounding Stephen King's remarks about literacy and the military.

King, who was scheduled to appear June 7 with John Grisham and Tess Gerritsen, expressed fear Monday that what was meant to be a literary event could have become all too political.

King took flak for comments he made to students on April 4 at the Library of Congress while stressing the importance for job seekers of being able to read. "If you don't," he said, "then you've got the Army, Iraq, I don't know, something like that."

In a statement relayed Monday by the Allen campaign, King said he doesn't want to be a distraction. Said King: "Since that might be the case now, it's best to do this event later, but it's just too good not to do it at all."

Allen spokeswoman Carol Andrews said people who bought tickets to the $25-a-person fundraiser can contact the campaign for a refund.

Allen, a sixth-term Democratic congressman, is challenging Republican Sen. Susan Collins.

Ghost Brothers postponed

Posted: May 6, 2008, 10:45
King-Mellencamp musical postponed in Atlanta

ATLANTA (AP) — A musical by John Mellencamp and Stephen King, scheduled to be produced next season in Atlanta, has been postponed, the Alliance Theatre announced Monday.
The Alliance announced in February that "Ghost Brothers of Darkland County," with music by Mellencamp and a book by horror master King, would open in April 2009, with the object of preparing it for a Broadway run.

The Alliance notified subscribers on Monday that the project has been delayed because of "unanticipated scheduling problems which could not be resolved in time for the production."

Members of the creative team "realized the script would not be ready by spring 2009," the statement said.

In the February announcement, the Alliance described the play as "a sultry Southern gothic mystery with a blues-tinged, guitar-driven score." Peter Askin was announced as the director.
The story is set in the fictional town of Lake Belle Reve, Miss., and centers on the deaths in 1957 of two brothers and a young girl and the legend that grows out of the tragedy.

The Alliance said it now hopes to produce the show during its 2009-2010 season.

More Under the Dome

Posted: May 5, 2008, 16:25
Here are more info about Under the Dome:

According to King at his reading on Book TV on C-SPAN 2 (taped back on the same day as the 3 Kings event), the long novel he's working on is... Under the Dome!

He said something along the lines of "I tried to write this 25 years ago...The idea stuck with me..." He again called it a very long novel. He then read the first few pages, about a woman getting a flying lesson and an old woodchuck walking along a road. The reading will be aired again on Saturday, May 17, at 8:00 AM if anyone is interested.

Here is what Rocky Wood wrote in SKUU about this manuscript:

The Cannibals is a novel of about 450 pages, rewritten in July to December 1981. Douglas Winter quotes King as saying that after writing It: "I worked on a book called The Cannibals ­ I had started it five years before, but it was called Under the Dome then. It didn' get finished either time."

The revision was written during the filming of Creepshow: I've gotten about four-hundred-and-fifty pages done and it is all about these people who are trapped in an apartment building. Worst thing I could think of. And I thought, wouldn't it be funny if they all ended up eating each other? It's very, very bizarre because it's all on one note. And who knows whether it will be published or not.'

Under the Dome

Posted: May 5, 2008, 10:32
In my interview with King earlier this year he talked about “a really long book” and this Sunday during the CSPAN2 airing of Writing Discussion with Stephen, Tabitha, and Owen King he revealed more about it.

In 1983, Stephen King began a book first titled “The Cannibals” which was also known as “Under the Dome”. This book remained unpublished and unfinished. According to Stephen King who appeared on CSPAN2 this evening on the program, “A writing Discussion with Stephen, Tabitha, and Owen King”, the book has come back to life. He read an excerpt from what promises to be a very long novel entitled “Under the Dome”. No publishing date was discussed. It looks like Stephen King is digging into his trunk of long abandoned novels and updating them like he did with Blaze. The short passage that King read dealt with the unexpected death of a small plane pilot and student. In recent interviews, Stephen King has mentioned that he is working on a very long book set in Maine. Stay posted for more updates…

Two events on June 7th

Posted: April 20, 2008, 00:11
This was sent out to King's official news letter today:

I don’t often get involved in politics, but I believe there is a great deal at stake in this year’s election. It is my pleasure to announce two very special events in Bangor, Maine on June 7th to benefit my friend Congressman Tom Allen’s campaign for the U.S. Senate.

Authors Tess Gerritsen, John Grisham, and I will be attending a special cocktail reception at the Bangor Civic Center. Immediately following that, we will be reading our favorite passages of some of the stories we have written – in front of what we’re sure will be a great audience at the Bangor Auditorium. I hope you can join us for these special events.

Saturday, June 7th

Host Committee Cocktail Reception: 5:00-6:00 pm
Bangor Civic Center, Bass Park Complex, 100 Dutton Street, Bangor, ME

General Admission Event: 7:00 pm (Doors Open at 6:00)
Bangor Auditorium, Bass Park Complex, 100 Dutton Street, Bangor, ME

You can buy tickets to both events - or just one - by clicking here.

And all the proceeds will certainly go to a good cause. Tess, John, and I believe that we need change in America. What has happened to our country in the last eight years is downright scary - and believe me, I know scary.

In 2002, Tom Allen courageously stood up to the President and to members of his own party by voting against the Iraq War. He supports opportunity for the middle class, energy independence, and affordable health care. Electing Tom Allen to the U.S. Senate is an important step towards change for our country, and we are proud to support him.

I hope you’ll join us on June 7th. Click here to purchase tickets now. We look forward to seeing you there!

This was also added:

Proceeds from this event will benefit Tom Allen for Senate. Funds from corporations, labor unions, national banks, federal contractors, or foreign nationals may not be accepted.

Mick Garris discusses Bag of Bones with Fangoria:

Garris will direct, and executive-produce with Mark Sennett (who served in a similar capacity on Garris’ ABC version of King’s DESPERATION), with THE STAND’s line producer Peter McIntosh reprising those duties. The screenplay was written by Matt Venne (pronounced “vein,” by the way).

“What appeals to me about King in general and BAG OF BONES in particular is how human it is,” Garris continues. “The recent King stuff is very adult and very passionate, which I really respond to. I just love the idea of doing a grown-up ghost story.”

Hill on Throttle

Posted: March 25, 2008, 10:00
Joe Hill comment about Throttle:

It’s giant truck from hell story. “Throttle” uses Richard Matheson’s unforgettable short story “Duel” as it’s jumping off point, although in the process of writing it, it quickly became it’s own thing.

He also comments on the different editions of the book.

That said, I’m also sensitive to and sympathetic with folks who just want to read the story without going broke. There is a plan in the works to make sure a wide-release version of “Throttle” will be available for everyone who wants it; because nothing is nailed down yet, I can’t say more than that. But at some point after the release of the Matheson anthology, that wide-release edition will get out there, so stay tuned.

Throttle by King and Hill

Here is the info we have all been waiting for about the collaboration between King and his son Joe Hill.

Just say the name and the memories come flooding back--Somewhere in Time, Duel, The Shrinking Man, I Am Legend, and countless more. He's one of the greatest storytellers of our time--or any time.

Now Gauntlet Press has assembled He Is Legend: Celebrating Richard Matheson, a spectacular anthology of original, never-before published stories by today's best writers--stories set in Richard Matheson's own fictional universes, and published with Mr. Matheson's complete cooperation!

And, among the many contributions to the book is the first collaboration ever between Stephen King and his son Joe Hill, the novella “Throttle” their take on Matheson’s classic “Duel.” This is, obviously, a once-in-a-lifetime publishing event as its father and sons first collaboration. Both Stephen King and Joe Hill will be signing both the numbered and lettered editions.

Other contributors to this anthology, edited by Christopher Conlon, include F. Paul Wilson, Joe Lansdale, Whitley Strieber, Richard Christian Matheson, William F. Nolan, Gary Braunbeck, Thomas Monteleone, John Shirley, Ed Gorman and an introduction by Ramsey Campbell (additional contributors will be announced at a later date).

And, as an added bonus, He Is Legend features the original full-length screenplay Conjure Wife--over 20,000 never-before published words by Richard Matheson himself, in collaboration with the late-Charles Beaumont that was filmed at “Burn, Witch Burn.”

Cover art and six interior illustrations by Matheson’s favorite artist Harry O. Morris.

To be released in February 2009 this signed limited edition will appear in the following states:

750 copy signed numbered edition (signed by all contributors except Richard Matheson)

52 copy lettered edition in a special bonded leather traycase This is the only edition that will be signed by Richard Matheson

We will begin taking orders immediately at the Gauntlet Press website ( but will not charge credit cards until January 1, 2009. Further details are at the Gauntlet Pres website. Address any questions to Gauntlet at
