An Upcoming Stephen King Film Has Hit A Roadblock, And I am Not Certain It Will Ever Get To Transfer Ahead

As completely demonstrated by cinematic historical past, the overwhelming majority of Stephen King novels make terrific fodder for giant and small display variations… however it’s not universally true. Some titles, like The Stand, IT, and the installments of the Darkish Tower sequence, have been seen as too large for Hollywood to understand, leading to tasks spending years in growth hell, however there are others that create extra sensible points (just like the expansive timeline of occasions that transpire in Revival). The Lengthy Stroll, initially revealed underneath King’s pseudonym Richard Bachman, is a e-book that falls into the latter class, and whereas there was cause to have hope for a live-action model in the previous few years, plainly hope has been dashed.

Director André Øvredal signed on to direct an adaptation of The Lengthy Stroll all the best way again in 2019, and he offered an optimistic replace concerning the venture in late 2020, however the newest growth isn’t wherever close to as constructive. Talking with the filmmaker final month throughout the digital press day for his new film, The Final Voyage Of The Demeter (in theaters August 18), I requested if there have been any updates about his in-the-works Stephen King venture, and he offered the unhappy information:

Yeah, no, I like that e-book. I like that venture. I am not a part of it anymore, which I am very unhappy about, however I feel in a method I used to be fortunate to get on [The Voyage Of The Demeter] principally as a substitute.
