Mr Mercedes Renewed For A Second Season

Posted: October 10, 2017, 23:44
AT&T's Audience Network announced today that there will be a second season of Mr Mercedes. Filming will begin in Febrary 2018 and have it's premiere launching later in the year.

Press Release: EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Oct. 10, 2017 – Leading up to the highly anticipated season finale tomorrow, Oct. 11 at 8pm ET/PT, AUDIENCE Network is pleased to announce that it has picked up this year’s break out show, “Mr. Mercedes,” for a second season. Production for the 10 one-hour episodes is scheduled to begin in February of 2018 in Charleston, South Carolina with the premiere launching later in the year. The series is produced by Sonar Entertainment.

Returning for the second season will be television veterans David E. Kelley (Big Little Lies, Ally McBeal) to write the script and Jack Bender (Lost, Under the Dome) as director. King, Kelley and Bender will also continue to serve as executive producers, along with Dennis Lehane, who will also write. The second season will be based on King’s best-selling Bill Hodges Trilogy, which includes, “Mr. Mercedes,” “Finders Keepers” and “End of Watch.”

“I’m excited and thrilled,” said Kelley. “Stephen King, Dennis Lehane, Jack Bender, Brendan Gleeson…this is a special team indeed.”

“Mr. Mercedes is Stephen King writing about the monsters inside his characters rather than outside,” said Bender. “We were extremely fortunate to attract an amazing cast, led by Brendan Gleeson and Harry Treadaway, to bring these flawed, complex colorful characters to life. With Sonar and AT&T, along with great scripts and our talented team in Charleston, I am thrilled to keep telling this story.”

“We’re thrilled that the first installment of ‘Mr. Mercedes’ resonated with such a wide audience,” said Christopher Long, head of AT&T AUDIENCE Network. “David E. Kelley, Jack Bender, Dennis Lehane, and Sonar did a masterful job crafting a series that honored the original work by Stephen King. We’re excited to have the opportunity to create a second season with this incredible team.”

“AT&T AUDIENCE Network has been a great home for the series and we are thrilled to be moving forward with the entire creative team returning,” added Tom Lesinski, CEO, Sonar Entertainment. “We can’t wait to get back into production and deliver another outstanding season.”

Season 1 of “Mr. Mercedes” followed a demented killer Brady Hartsfield (Harry Treadaway) who taunts a retired police detective Bill Hodges (Brendan Gleeson) with a series of lurid letters and emails, forcing the ex-cop to undertake a private, and potentially felonious, crusade to bring the killer to justice before he is able to strike again.

Stephen King describes “Mr. Mercedes” as his first hard-boiled detective tale. The novel was published by Scribner in June 2014 and became an immediate No. 1 New York Times Bestseller upon its release. Shortly after the release of the novel, King announced that “Mr. Mercedes” was the first of a projected trilogy. The second novel, “Finders Keepers,” was published by Scribner in June 2015, and the third novel, “End of Watch,” was published by Scribner in June 2016.

“Mr. Mercedes” season 1 episodes are available OnDemand on DIRECTV and U-verse platforms to DirecTV and U-verse customers. AT&T AUDIENCE Network is available on DIRECTV Ch. 239 or U-verse TV Ch. 1114 and via live streaming on the DIRECTV and U-verse apps and DIRECTV NOW.

The Outsider To Be Released June 5

Posted: October 10, 2017, 22:39
Simon & Schuster has announced King's next book; The Outsider. The book will be released on June 5, 2018. Here is what they say about it on their site.

The Outsider
By Stephen King
From #1 New York Times bestseller Stephen King, whose brand has never been stronger, comes one of his most propulsive and unsettling stories ever.

An eleven-year-old boy is found in a town park, hideously assaulted and murdered. The fingerprints (and later DNA) are unmistakably those of the town’s most popular baseball coach, Terry Maitland, a man of impeccable reputation, with a wife and two daughters. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland coached, orders an immediate and public arrest. Maitland is taken to jail, his claim to innocence scorned. Maitland has a foolproof alibi, with footage to prove that he was in another city when the crime was committed. But that doesn't save him either.

King constructs a propulsive plot, and a race against time to uncover the identity of a terrifying and diabolical killer who has left victims—and “perpetrators”—across the country, and who is on his way to his next horrific act.

King’s psychological suspense is at its most riveting in this extraordinarily dramatic and eerie story. He is devastatingly vivid on the experience of being falsely blamed—the effect on the accused, the spouse, the children; the suspicion of friends, even the most loyal; the impossibility of ever being innocent again (if you are lucky to enough to live). He is also masterful at showing us that supernatural monsters are startlingly like human beings who do monstrous things.

Lilja Meets Stephen & Owen King 2017

Posted: October 9, 2017, 08:00
It's September 26, 2017. The day Stephen and Owen's book, Sleeping Beauties, is released. It's also the day they kick off their promotion tour for the book in New York. And I'm there, right in New York ready to see The King’s.

The day starts early as I’m jetlagged and wakes up at 3AM. I make the most of the time I have in New York though so after a shower and breakfast I head down to the studio where they are filming Good Morning American. Since I only found out that Stephen and Owen would be guests on the show the day before all the tickets are gone. I’m not too bummed out about that though since their segment will only be a couple of minutes and the rest of the 2 hour show isn’t that interesting to be honest. I find it more fun to stand outside with a lot of other fans and professional photographers watching the stars come and go. This particular day Harrison Ford and Kate Winslet are also guests and a lot of their fans are also present.

Video: Lilja

The evening’s event (and the reason I’m here) starts at 7PM but people are starting to line up hours in advance outside St. Ann’s and the Holy Trinity Church. The church didn’t have assigned seating so it's first come first served. So, if you want front row seats you need to be there early. And normally I would have been there really early but not this time. Why? Well, I had the good fortune to be granted a visit backstage to say "Hi" to Stephen and Owen. And what is a front row seat compared to that? Right, nothing.

So I arrive around 6:15 and 6:30 I'm let in through the side door of this old church to meet Stephen King. I would be lying if I said I wasn't nervous but once I shake his hand that all falls away. He is such a nice man, asking me how I like New York and if I'm jetlagged. We chat a bit and then I ask if he would sign my copy of Sleeping Beauties that I brought (the ones included in the event weren’t being distributed until after the event). He didn't mind and dedicated it to me and then said "I'll get Owen to sign it as well". And Owen didn't just sign it, he actually drew a moth in the book, how cool is that?

Photo left: Marsha DeFilippo, Photo right: Stephen King

While Owen is doing this I noticed another familiar face. Peter Straub who with Stephen wrote The Talisman and Black House is sitting right beside Owen. And I can't resist introducing myself (Peter and I have spoken through emails earlier) and shake his hand. Then Stephen King takes a photo of me and Peter Straub. How cool is that? And after that he also takes a photo of me and Owen (I really put Stephen to work). After that it's time for the Kings to get ready for the reading and me to move into the church.

Photo: Stephen King

When I arrive the seats in the front half of the church are all taken but I noticed a lot of people are sitting up on the balcony so I go up there and manage to find a seat in the front row, just to the left of some electrical equipment (part of the sound system I think) but who cares. The seat is perfect and I have a great view over where Stephen and Owen sit.

Photo: Lilja

The event is introduced by Emma Straub (who also introduced her father, the audience cheered) and then the Kings enter the stage a few minutes after 7. The simplicity of the stage is very promising. It's just the Kings in two chairs and two large posters of the book cover. What's about to happen is all going to have to be done by Stephen and Owen. And they deliver, man do they deliver.

Video: Lilja

Each of them read a part from the book, Owen about the fox and Stephen about a meeting the men have at a bar. And while they read it struck me how good they are at reading out loud. Not everyone pulls that of but both Stephen and Owen could have a career narrating books if they ever get tired of writing them.

They have each prepared a few questions for each other without the other one knowing the questions beforehand. This generates an interesting and spontaneous discussion between the two of them. The questions include "What was it like to collaborate on the book?", Owen tells how he used to freeze his GI Joes and how they together created a GI Joe. Stephen asked Owen to tell us what child labor he was forced to do as a kid and Owen told us how he recorded books for his father when he was young. Owen then asked Stephen how he manages to keep all his characters different from each other and not repeating them.

Photo: Lilja

The event ended with pre sent in questions from the audience. Do they still doubt themselves even though they are now successful? Did they ask their wives for input on the female characters in Sleeping Beauties (King told a great story about his mother in law) and who they think would be best to play Stephen in a movie about him. Owen said Bill Hader from SNL.

Photo: Lilja

With that the event was over. The Kings left the stage and the rest of us (pretty warm and sweaty since the church was hotter than a sauna) started queuing for our book. You gave the person giving out books the wristband you got when you entered the church and in return you got a book. Once outside you could hear spontaneous cheers when someone opened their book and found two signatures inside. I opened mine and was happy to see that I had gotten a signed copy of the book.

Photo: Lilja

Later that night as I was in a cab on my way back to my hotel I tried to summarize the evening in my head but it was hard to grasp everything that had happened. Had I really shook Stephen, Owen and Peter's hands? And gotten my photo taken with them (most of the photos taken by Stephen himself)? Yes I had. All I had to do was pick up my phone and the photos were there. And the books, one personalized by Stephen and Owen and the other one signed by them. It was true, it had happened and it had been a truly great evening.

Photo: Stephen King

Another thing that was really great about the evening was that I got to shake Marsha DeFilippo's hand. She is Stephen's assistant that has endured me for over 20 years. She has supported me and helped me more than I can even describe in words. This evening I got the shake her hand and say thanks. That meant a lot to me! Thanks again Marsha!

I also want to thank everyone who supported the Crowdfunding that made this possible. I couldn’t have done it without your help and support! I know who you are and you know who you are! Thanks!

Castle Rock Filming In A Cemetery

Posted: October 1, 2017, 20:50
Castle Rock is filming in a cemetery next week.

It may have been inevitable that the production crew shooting a Stephen King-inspired online series would want to film in a cemetery.

And that’s exactly what will happen one day next week, when those involved in “Castle Rock” set up shop in Central Cemetery to shoot a funeral scene.

My Review Of Gerald's Game

Posted: September 29, 2017, 08:00
Here is my review of Gerald's Game that premiers today on Netflix.

Gerald’s Game, has for a long time, been ”the unfilmable Stephen King book”. Then back in 2014 Mike Flanagan got attached to it. The years came and went and no film appeared. Until now. Three years after it was first announced Mike Flanagan has filmed the unfilmable book. And how did he do? I’m happy to say that he did great!

The Mist Canceled After 1 Season

Posted: September 28, 2017, 01:34
The Mist has been canceled after just one season. Spike confirmed to Deadline that it has canceled its horror series based on a novella by Stephen King from the early 1980s after one season.

The Mist, which marked Spike’s first original scripted series, was leftover from the old regime and programming strategy at the network, which will be rebranded as Paramount Network in January. Asked in March whether The Mist could continue on the Paramount Network, Kevin Kay, president of Spike/Paramount Network, TV Land and CMT, said, “in success, if this season on Spike goes well, we would pick it up for next year, and Season 2 will be on Paramount. We think it’s got a lot of potential.”

What do you think? Was it a misstake to cancle The Mist?

Stephen & Owen Reading In New York

Posted: September 27, 2017, 04:59
Today was the first reading on Stephen and Owen's tour to promote Sleeping Beauties and while I will write a longer article about it I wanted to tell you about some things that happened during the event.

Stephen and Owen each read a part from Sleeping Beauties and then asked eachother questions. The event then ended with questions for the audience. Nothing was revealed about the next book.

I also got a chance of saying "Hi" to Stephen and Owen before the event.

And special guest Peter Straub was in the audience...and no, that dosn't mean they are working on The Talisman 3.

Oh and I did get a signed copy of the book.

My Interview With Owen King

Posted: September 27, 2017, 01:00
Today is the release day for Sleeping Beauties by Stephen and Owen King. It’s also the start of their tour to promote the book.

I got a chance to talk to Owen about the book and how he and Stephen wrote it. You can see what he had to say here.

The genesis was just a one sentence pitch that I made to my dad: "What if all the women in the world fell asleep?" I wanted him to take the idea and run with it. The notion struck me as one that you could make a hell of a disturbing meal out of, and that's kind of his specialty, whereas most of my own writing to that point had been pretty mainstream. He was very insistent that I should write it, though. Eventually, we compromised and wrote it together.

N Being Filmed as 8

Posted: September 26, 2017, 22:55
According to Bloody Discusting King's story N will be turned into a TV series called 8. Lights Out and Annabelle: Creation helmer David F Sandberg is directing the pilot while Andrew Barrer & Gabe Ferrari are writing the script.

“N”, now “8”, takes place in Maine where a group of eight imposing stones contains an ancient evil so terrifying that it can drive visitors mad. In the summer of 1992, three teenagers escaped the malicious force, and are confronted 25 years later.

My Review Of Sleeping Beauties

Posted: September 26, 2017, 14:00
Today is the release day for Sleeping Beauties by Stephen and Owen King. It’s also the start of their tour to promote the book. I have read the book and you can check out my review here.

Sleeping Beauties is a great book. A great collaboration and it shows that both Stephen and Owen are great writers (as if anyone doubted it) and have the ability to draw characters that you care about, both good and evil.

My Interview With Federico Bebber

Posted: September 25, 2017, 14:00
Here is an interview I did with Federico Bebber who did the cover art for Sleeping Beauties.

The actual illustration is a modified version of something I created almost four years ago. I was contacted by who created the composition. As a long time King fan, I was totally flattered and excited. A dream come true!

Today Stephen King turns 70

Posted: September 21, 2017, 12:00
Dear Stephen,

I have been reading your books for the last 34 years. During those years you’ve been constantly present in my life. Some periods very present, others less, but always present. During these 34 years I’ve gone to school, gotten married, changed jobs and raised a family and time has sometimes been limited but I’ve always made time when there’s a new story.

In the beginning, I read the books in Swedish but as the translated books all got read I started reading in English. I didn’t want to wait for them to be translated and I’m 100% certain that I did as good as I did in English class because I was reading your books in English. I’m not sure my teachers would agree but I know this for a fact.

During the years I have read everything I can get my hands on. And the feeling is always the same. A feeling of excitement when I get that new book in my hands and then a feeling of joy and happiness when I open it and read the first page and the second and the third… I feel so blessed to have something that gives me that feeling. Don’t get me wrong there are a lot of things in life that gets me excited and happy and fill me with joy but this is a very special feeling. I can’t explain it but if you have experienced it you know exactly what I’m talking about. And unfortunately, a lot of people never get to feel anything like that. I do and for that I’m extremely grateful.

And for that I want to thank you Stephen! And congratulations! Today is your day!

Disturbing Scene Cut From IT

Posted: September 19, 2017, 19:44
Bill Skarsgård revealed in an interview that IT originally included a scene that even he considered "disturbing."

"There was a scene we shot that was a flashback from the 1600s, before Pennywise [was Pennywise]," he explained on an episode of Variety's Playback podcast. "The scene turned out really, really disturbing. And I'm not the clown. I look more like myself. It's very disturbing, and sort of a backstory for what It is, or where Pennywise came from."

Hopefully it will be included on the DVD/Blu-ray edition or in the second movie. Read more here.

Gerald's Game Poster

Posted: September 14, 2017, 08:29
Here is the Netflix poster for Gerald's Game.

Directed by Mike Flanagan (Oclus, Hush), a woman (Carla Gugino) accidentally kills her husband (Bruce Greenwood) after being handcuffed to a bed, leaving her unable to free herself. As time passes and she realizes that rescue is an all but hopeless thought, she begins to slip into insanity, the voices in her head manifesting into visions.

Gerald's Game will be streaming on Netflix starting September 29th, 2017.
