“Silence of the Lambs” director teams up with Stephen King for new film

How’s that for a headline, huh? I get super-excited just reading that. Variety has reported that the film right’s to Stephen King’s upcoming novel 11/22/63 has been sold to Silence of the Lambs director Jonathan Demme.

Demme will write and direct the film adaptation of King’s new book, which is about a Maine high school teacher who travels back in time to prevent the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

The book itself is set to hit stores in November 8th.

But wait! There’s more!

It has also been announced that King’s The Stand is returning as a series of feature films, with Harry Potter screenwriter Steve Cloves and Harry Potter director David Yates attached to the project.
