Revival

Josh Boone can now add Revival to his growing Stephen King collection. About a preacher turned faith healer who opens a portal to a darker alternate dimension, the novel “Revival” published in 2014 will be made into a film by Boone and Michael De Luca for a possible late 2020 release date.

Boone, who wants to finish Revival before he starts The Stand, has already submitted the script to Universal for approval and I expect they’ll start production by the end of the year. King is reportedly pleased with Boone’s take on the film.

My Pretty Pony

I’ve never read this story, but it sounds like the last Stephen King creation anyone would consider adapting into a full-length feature film. Originally written as part of a discarded novel under King’s Richard Bachman pseudonym, he kept “My Pretty Pony” and published it in 1989 then later included it in the “Nightmares and Dreamscapes” collection in 1993

“My Pretty Pony” is about a dying man who gives his young grandson a pocket watch and teaches him about the nature of time, explaining that as you grow, time moves faster and faster and will eventually slip away if you don’t hold on.

Tobin Bell and Noah Jupe will star in the film directed by Luke Jaden and produced by Josh Boone. Shooting will take place this spring, but no release date has been announced yet.
