TNT is adapting Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot into a four-hour mini-series and according to The Hollywood
Reporter screenwriter Peter Filardi ("Flatliners," "The Craft") will adapt the novel. Producer Mark Wolper
("The Mists of Avalon") hopes to have the same jarring affect on today’s audiences, as did the 1979 version
starring David Soul and James Mason. According to E! the miniseries will air next season.
Here's a link to a review of upcoming and current film adaptations of King's work:
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that filmmaker Lawrence Kasdan has come aboard to direct and produce the feature
adaptation of Stephen King's best-selling novel "The Dreamcatcher" for Warner Bros.-based Castle Rock Entertainment.
There is no start date yet. "Dreamcatcher," which is being adapted by William Goldman, is a thriller about four childhood
friends who share a special relationship after having performed a heroic act. Years later, they must reunite for another
heroic act -- to save Earth from a mysterious force. The project is said to have elements of "The Green Mile" and
"Stand by Me," both of which are King novels that Castle Rock has brought to the big screen.
The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon won't be shooting anytime soon. It is still very alive though. As recently as a few
weeks ago, George was discussing the script with Stephen King, followed by a major re-write. The movie will be VERY
faithful to the novel and that Tom Gordon himself had expressed interest in playing himself in the movie. Nothing is

Production began April 17 on The SCI FI Channel's upcoming original Firestarter miniseries, based on the Stephen King
novel and starring Marguerite Moreau (Queen of the Damned), Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange), Danny Nucci (The
Rock) and Dennis Hopper (Blue Velvet). The four-hour miniseries--tentatively titled Firestarter: The Next Chapter--began
shooting in Salt Lake City under the direction of Robert Iscove (Cinderella), based on a script by Philip Eisner (Event Horizon).
"Firestarter: The Next Chapter" picks up the story of Charlene "Charlie" McGee (played originally by Drew Barrymore) 20 years
after the events in the original book. Charlie (Moreau) has spent the past 20 years on the run from the government that
created her and killed her parents. Tired of running, Charlie searches for answers to her dangerous and out-of-control
psychic fire-starting powers. She discovers those answers at the university that ran secret mind-altering experiments on
Rainbird (McDowell), a sociopathic agent who wants to control Charlie's powers, has finally caught up with her. The secret
experiments never stopped, and now Rainbird has a human arsenal of powerful children with strange psychic abilities with which
to catch Charlie. In the coming battle, Charlie's only chance for survival might be a turncoat government agent (Nucci) and
half-mad character named Richardson (Hopper).
The mini-series is tentatively scheduled to air in December
Dolan's Cadillac: Sylvester Stallone is confirmed to star as Jimmy Dolan, a local mob boss. Kevin Bacon is currently

Stephen King and John Mellencamp are collaborating on a haunted musical (currently still without title). The storyline
is about two brothers who are very competative and dislike each other immensely. Their father takes
them to the family cabin which they hadn't been to since they were kids. It is there that the brothers discover they
have a few skeletons in the family closet. It seems their father had had two older brothers who hated and killed each
other in that very same cabin. King has already written a synopsis of the show and won over financial backers. Mellencamp
has already written four songs. The show could be ready for the fall 2001 season.
Riding The Bullet is being adapted into a feature-length film by Mick Garris who has completed writing the screenplay. Since
this is a short story, elements will be added to the original story in the movie.
Peter Straub announced that there will be a limited edition of Black House, the sequel to The Talisman. It will be
published by Donald M. Grant. Do not contact Grant about this book yet, though. Try them in about six months. Grant's
