This looks like such a fantastic union that I’m actually shocked it has occurred but. Director Sam Raimi, who has been making the rounds selling Doctor Strange within the Multiverse of Madness, has expressed that he wants to adapt a Stephen King novel for the massive display.

During a chat with CinemaBlend, Raimi revealed that he actually wants to make a Stephen King film. When he was requested if he had any specific King novels in thoughts to adapt, he talked about a few favorites however a few of them have already been made. Here is what he had to say:

“Oh, absolutely. I love The Shining, but someone already had that. And I loved Carrie, but that had already been made by the time I had read it. And then his Night Shift collection is so brilliant. So many of those stories would’ve made great movies. Rob Reiner made a great one that I wanted to make too. So there’s been plenty of great King stories that I wish I could get involved with. Maybe in the future, we can work together.”

There is already a earlier Sam Raimi and Stephen King connection. After King considered The Evil Dead on the 1983 Cannes Film Festival, he went public and known as it his fifth favourite horror film of all time in a assessment for Twilight Magazine. Some imagine that due to King’s public help, the movie gained a lot extra consideration and a nationwide launch from New Line Cinema. In the Nineteen Nineties, Raimi stepped in entrance of the digital camera for the miniseries variations of two of King’s hottest novels. He performed a fuel station attendant in The Shining and Bobby Terry, one in all Randall Flagg’s henchmen, in The Stand.
