What else shall fall before the Batman?
Aug 23
One of the things that happens when you get cast as Batman is that Batman becomes a major time suck. Affleck now has a Batman/Superman movie to start in, a JLA film to star in (and possible direct) and most likely a stand alo... read

Stephen King's It getting adapted into two movies

Jun 08
It is one of my favorite Stephen King books, to the point where I wind up re-reading it every year, and every year I thoroughly enjoy it until the adolescent gangbang at the end. Seriously. If you don't remember that, yo... read

Jonathan Demme will adapt an upcoming Stephen King novel

Aug 12
I flat out hated Rachel Getting Married, so Jonathan Demme's not been on my good list for a little while, at least since his serviceable remake of The Manchurian Candidate. Still, the man did Silence of the Lambs. H... read

I will say it now: The Stand is Stephen King's best book. Or, the Complete and Uncut Edition is, anyway. It's also one of his longest books, and, as we all know, the longer a story is, the more difficult it is to adapt. ... read feature


After surviving a halted production that was restarted with a lower budget, you'd be forgiven for thinking The Dark Tower might still have a chance at being produced. Those hopes will now dwindle to little more than a dream, ... read feature
