Joyland, the new Hard Case Crime novel by Stephen King, is not so much a murder mystery as it is a coming-of-age story set in an amusement park.
Stephen King has always stated that The Dark Tower series of novels contained a story that will forever haunt him until he is in his grave. Themes of these stories are echoed in his other stories and after the series ended, there was even a graphic novel prequel. Now, King has announced he is working on a new novel, The Wind through the Keyhole, which takes place during the original The Dark Tower series.
It’s been a good year for Stephen King, but when is it not? In addition to “Bag of Bones” coming to t.v. soon, the ongoing “will it or won’t it” movie or mini-series of “The Dark Tower”, writing a sequel to the “The Shining” and a new novel already being turned into a script, what more could an author ask for?
Unless you have been living under a rock, you are probably aware that A&E has been adapting Stephen King’s “Bag of Bones” into a two-part mini-series. Well now we have a release date for that series (December), as well as the first trailer.
I had not heard that this was even in the works (even though it was originally mentioned in 2009), but apparently, Stephen King is going to give us a sequel to The Shining, titled Dr. Sleep.
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.
Although The Dark Tower project is officially dead in the water (much to my relief), there is still some Stephen King headed to television. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bag of Bones is being adapted for television by the A&E Network into a four-part mini-series.
