Steve and Joe Talks In The Tall Grass

Stephen King & Joe Hill talks In the Tall Grass. Steve also mention that there's an upcoming adaptation from Spain of A Good Marriage.

King: With the streaming platforms (and cable TV), somebody can tackle a long novel the way they tackled “NOS4A2” or “Mr. Mercedes.” But with a shorter thing, it's tailor-made for the movies. I think of “Shawshank Redemption” and the upcoming adaptation from Spain of “A Good Marriage.” The original “Children of the Corn” wasn't too bad either.

My Thoughts About In The Tall Grass

Posted: October 4, 2019, 09:24
Here are my thoughts about In the Tall Grass.

In the Tall Grass is one of those stories that when you read it you think ”there is no way this can be filmed”. In the case of this one it’s mainly because it’s both strange and quite brutal. But I was wrong. It’s now filmed, and it works. Vincenzo did it and I think he did it very well.

New Hill Collection Will Contain Collaborations

Posted: January 31, 2019, 10:02
Joe Hill will release a new short story collection entitled Full Throttle in the fall (October 29). The book will be 384 pages and feature eleven short stories. Some of them new and some previously published elsewhere.

The book will include Hill’s two collaborations with his father Stephen King; Full Throttle and In The Tall Grass. In The Tall Grass has been filmed and will probably premiere later this year while Full Throttle was reported to be getting a big-screen treatment but nothing else has surfaced about that since it was first reported.

Deadline reports that Patrick Wilson, Laysla De Oliveira and Harrison Gilbertson has been cast in In The Tall Grass:

The Vincenzo Natali-directed thriller In The Tall Grass is getting underway in Toronto for Netfix, and the film stars Patrick Wilson, Laysla De Oliveira and Harrison Gilbertson. Pic is based on a short story by Stephen King and son Joe Hill that was published in Esquire Magazine. Netflix acquired the underlying short story rights some time ago, when James Marsden was originally attached. Scheduling conflicts knocked him out of the lead role.
