John Cusack has declared his interest in starring in a big screen adaptation of 'Doctor Sleep,' Stephen King's sequel to 'The Shining.'
While there has been no definite talk of a 'Doctor Sleep' movie, Cusack singled it out in a Reddit Ask Me Anything Q&A as a project that he would "accept in a heartbeat" if it was offered to him.

Here is her description of the photo:
I got married on 23rd July 2013 but I couldn't have my big day without a bit of Stephen! Pictured is my first dance featuring my new husband, myself and the real love of my life Stephen's Night Shift! :)
If you are a serious Stephen King collector and want to pick up something unique for your collection, here is a great opportunity:
They are also giving away 3 to 5 bonuses with each order, including a 1st edition hardcover of Doctor Sleep."
The winners are:
Stephen will be doing a book signing on Wednesday the 13th of November from 13:00 till 15:00 at MK2 Bibliothéque, 128-162 Avenue due France, 75013 Paris. This will not be a ticketed event and will be on a first-come, first-served basis so we, therefore, cannot guarantee that all who attend will be able to have a book signed if there are still fans waiting in line after 15:00. To accommodate as many fans as possible, there will be a one book per person limit. Fans may either bring the one book from their personal collection or purchase a book from MK2 at the event.
Sounds to me that you'll need to be there early if you want a signes book!
Thanks to Herbert West and Stefano Gatti

And I’m not sure who (or why) I’ll give it to. When something feels right I’ll just pick the one who wrote it as a winner. So, get creative. The only rule is that there are no rules. You can write whatever you want (preferable nice though) and I’ll just pick the winners as I see them. Might be tomorrow, might be on September 23 or somewhere in between. So, get creative!
Oh, and you can enter as many times as you like and you can live anywhere in the world. Everyone can enter. One thing though, please keep an eye out for my messages. If you are a winner I will contact you in the same forum as your message was posted, i.e. if you win for something posted on facebook that is where I’ll let you know.
Well, thanks to a collaboration between Lilja’s Library and Lilja Says all you need is to follow Lilja’s Library and Lilja Says on facebook and you might just be lucky enough to get a free copy. You do have to follow (like) both facebook pages though (I did say it was a collaboration right?).
On September 23rd (in time for you to know if you need to get a copy like everyone else of if you're one of the lucky winners) I’ll draw three lucky winners that each will get a hardcover of the UK edition of Doctor Sleep. Contest is open to anyone, no matter who you are or were you live!
Would you like one of Cemetery Dance's editons for free?
I know you do and all you need to do to have a chance is send it a photo of you and your favorite King book.
