As one of the most lucrative and prolific writers ever, Stephen King created some of best macabre myths and supernatural stories of all time. Ever since he debuted with Carrie in 1974, King has been continually raising the bar in the mystery/horror genre and he doesn’t show any signs of stopping. Many of his works have already been adapted for movies and television. Some of them, such as The Shawshank Redemption and The Shining have gone on to become iconic classics of American cinema, while others, like The Lawnmower Man and Maximum Overdrive, received much less critical acclaim but still managed to worm their way into the hearts of many as cult B-movie favorites. This is likely the reason why King has become such a permanent fixture in our culture. His stories just seem to penetrate every conceivable area of entertainment from comic books to Broadway musicals, and he always seems to have his name attached to a host of projects in development. With that being said, here’s a list of some of Stephen King movies and TV shows that are currently in the pipeline.
In 11/22/63 a schoolteacher named Jake stumbles across a portal in a diner pantry that transports him back in time to the year 1958. After experimenting with the portal a few times to confirm how it works, Jake prepares to set out on a mission to prevent the the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot production company secured the rights to adapt 11/22/63 in 2013, and they’ve already developed it into a mini-series starring James Franco. The 11.22.63 TV series will premiere on Presidents Day (February 15) 2016, with Hulu releasing episodes on a weekly basis.
