In passing King mentioned that he has written a new novella called Rattlesnake that’s actually a sequel to Cujo.
“I just wrote a long story called Rattlesnakes. And it involves, at one part, twins who are only four years old… falling into a rattlesnake pit. And the snakes get ’em. It’s a terrible scene.”
Unfortunately the interviewers didn’t follow up on this so we don’t really got to know how it’s connected to Cujo.
It also seams that Mr Harrigan’s Phone is done. King mentions that he’ll see it later the same day they did the interview.
He also talks about Fairy Tale and admits that the new Firestarter movie wasn’t all that good.
He also said he didn’t want to see The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile remade and that he is doubtful about the proposed Christine remake.
He is looking forward to Mr. Harrigan’s Phone The Boogeyman and the proposed streaming version of The Talisman (presently in the works at Netflix with Steven Spielberg as an executive producer).
Colin O’Brien and Cyrus Arnold have joined the cast of Netflix Mr. Harrigan’s Phone. O’Brien will play a Young Craig and Arnold as Craig’s antagonist, Kenny Yankovich.
The film is currently in production and will be released globally on Netflix in 2022.
John Lee Hancock is set to write and direct and Ryan Murphy will serve as a producer on the movie. According to issue 1261 of Production Weekly the movie is set to enter production in October 2021 in Connecticut, US. There is no word on how long filming will take or when the movie will premier but a good guess is that Netflix will aim for a 2022 release.
Netflix, Blumhouse and Ryan Murphy have teamed to option Mr. Harrigan’s Phone which John Lee Hancock will adapt and direct. Jason Blum, Murphy and Carla Hacken will produce.
Rat has been optioned to Ben Stiller, who intends to product, direct and star in the feature.

If It Bleeds staring Holly might find it’s own movie but may also bleed into the future of The Outsider series.
If this happens it’s the first time since Full Dark, No Stars we have seen so many stories in a 4-story collection been filmed.
