IT movie: Stephen King reveals WHICH horror classic is heading to cinemas next

After the staggering success of the IT movie in cinemas, Hollywood must scrambling to greenlight any King novel available.

Pennywise and his chums in The Losers Club have become the biggest horror movie of all time at the US box office, completely overshadowing the disastrous performance of another King adaptation, The Dark Tower. 

No wonder all the talk is focussed on the more purely horror classics ripe for adaptation.

The author himself just revealed which novels are being lined up for the big and small screen.

The IT movie director Andres Muschietti has made no secret of his love for Pet Sematary, but he is committed to making the second part of It first. After that he is still attached to direct the movie adaptation of cult anime franchise Robotech.

Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment also bought the rights to the Stephen King short story The Jaunt with Muschietti lined up to direct.

King told Vulture about the other major novels that were generating huge interest with one of his most famous books looking likely to repeat It’s translation from TV mini series to big screen blockbuster.

King said: “There’s talk about doing The Stand as an extended TV series, possibly for Showtime or CBS All Access, and there’s been some interest in developing Salem’s Lot as a feature, probably because people are saying, ‘Well, we took an old miniseries called It and turned it into a phenomenon, so maybe we can do it with something else.”’

“Nothing succeeds like excess!”

The author also confirmed the reports that Insomnia could be made into a virtual reality show.

He said: “You just never know until it’s gonna happen, but the VR thing is still percolating away. I don’t think it’s dead or anything like that, although I haven’t heard about it lately. There’s talk about another thing, an animated feature, but I can’t tell you anything further — it’s a secret. That looks like it might happen.”
