Cary Fukunaga’s adaptation of Stephen King’s It is one seriously ambitious project, and given the massive size and the generation-spanning scope of the novel, it’s hardly surprising (and even something of a relief) that he’s splitting the story into two films. Fukunaga has a lot of work ahead of him, but most challenging will be the casting of Pennywise the clown, the terrifying entity made famous by Tim Curry in the ‘90s miniseries adaptation. Rest assured that Fukunaga isn’t taking that casting lightly.

Stephen King’s ‘It’ is a beast of a book. Over its 1,000-plus pages, the novel follows a group of close-knit friends who do battle with a malevolent, child-killing force in their youth, only to reunite decades later to finish the job. It’s a messy, ambitious and insanely (perversely, even) detailed work. It feels unadaptable. But no one tell that to ‘True Detective’ director Cary Fukunaga, whose long-gestating adaptation is finally going before cameras next summer.

Stephen King's 'The Stand' is a project that has struggled to find its way to the big screen for many years now, but in the hands of 'The Fault in Our Stars' director Josh Boone, it's finally picking up serious steam and the adaptation has felt more promising than ever. Whether or not Boone could take King's epic novel and translate it into one film has been a lingering question, and one that Boone has finally answered: No, 'The Stand' will not be just one film. Instead, it will be a shocking four-film adaptation, which seems excessive even for fans of the novel.

Stephen King, the horror maestro behind dozens of great and plenty of terrible novels, recently sat down for his first extended interview in 15 years and revealed himself to be just like your smart, political and odd uncle. Well, an uncle that really, really hates 'Room 237' and Stanley Kubrick's 'The Shining.'

Adapting Stephen King's epic novel 'The Stand' is no easy feat -- but we've been previously assured that the latest iteration, which has fallen into the hands of 'The Fault in Our Stars' director Josh Boone, would be an R-rated, three-hour version. Well, maybe that's not entirely true, according to King himself. You know, if King himself is to believed about such things.

While 'Oculus' wasn't a titan at the box office like 'The Conjuring,' it was definitely quite a clever and spooky little horror flick, making director Mike Flanagan a name to keep an eye on. Flanagan has set his next project, and it's certainly going to take someone with clever ideas for an adaptation of Stephen King's 'Gerald's Game'
