But in the story primed for the digital age and age of online misinformation, the question faced is are the murders real or fake?”"

Every Upcoming Stephen King Movies, TV Miniseries And More.

This is only some of the films etc, still just as many more on the link.

https://www.cinemablend.com/news/171...oBtmHcCYxFMXKQ

There are certain authors that Hollywood just can't get enough of, and one of those is Stephen King. Sure, it helps that the guy is one of the most prolific writers of the last 50 years, constantly putting out novels, novellas and short stories, but the reality is that filmmakers never seem to tire of King's particular voice and storytelling. Not even counting TV shows or miniseries, there are more than 40 King adaptations that have been released over the years, and there are many more set to come out in the next few years.

Below we'll dive into all of the titles that are currently in the works, both for the big screen and the small. Whether they're finished and about to come out, just starting out in development, or in a kind of "question mark" state, read on to learn about all of the Stephen King movies and TV projects that are currently in some stage of production.

Lisey’s Story - TV Miniseries - Post-Production
Film and television productions around the world were brought to a halt because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the long-awaited Lisey’s Story Apple TV+ series was one of the many victims of the shutdown. As such, what was supposed to be a 2020 miniseries turned into a 2021 miniseries, but now it's almost here. Based on a book that Stephen King has said is his favorite among those he has written, the story will center on the titular Lisey (Julianne Moore) as she works to restart he life in the wake of the death of her husband, a renowned fiction writer named Scott Landon (Clive Owen). King and filmmaker Pablo Larrain have respectively written and directed every episode, and the supporting cast includes Jennifer Jason-Leigh, Joan Allen, Sung Kang, Dane DeHaan, and Ron Cephas Jones. The premiere is now scheduled for June 4.

Chapelwaite - Miniseries - Post-Production
Stephen King’s 1978 short story “Jerusalem’s Lot” will also be getting a 10-episode television adaptation in the near future with the Epix series titled Chapelwaite, starring Adrien Brody and Emily Hampshire in the lead roles. The project was originally slated to premiere in fall 2020, but production delays because of COVID-19 forced the schedule to change. According to Huddle, production was back in full swing in August 2020 when Brody was spotted in Halifax, but we still don’t know when we’ll see the adaptation of King’s 1850-set story about a man who travels to his ancestral home in Maine and discovers a deep evil that is tied to its history and his family.

Firestarter - Movie - Pre-Production
Blumhouse Productions has become one of the biggest names in horror in recent years, and they are ready to get into the world of Stephen King adaptations with a remake of Firestarter. In the works since Spring 2017, the movie will once again tell the story of a young father who has to go on the run to protect his pyrokinetic daughter from a government agency known as The Shop. With The Vigil director Keith Thomas attached to helm, Zac Efron boarded the film in September 2020 to play Andy McGree, and Michael Greyeyes has signed on to play the villainous John Rainbird.

The Talisman - Series - In Development
The Stephen King and Peter Straub novel The Talisman, a fantasy about a 12-year-old boy's epic journey to save his mother, has long been one of the adaptations that fans want to see most but remains one that can’t seem to get made. In the past two years there have been two movie versions that didn't get off the ground – one from The Stand's Josh Boone, and the other from Outlander and The Handmaid’s Tale director Mike Barker. As of March 2021, however, the project has changed course, and it is now being developed as a series for Netflix. Steven Spielberg and Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer are producing, while Stranger Things writer/producer Curtis Gwinn will serve as showrunner.

Elevation - Movie - In Development
In 2018, Stephen King added to the large canon of stories set in the mysterious town of Castle Rock, Maine, and three years later that story – titled Elevation – is, as of February 2021, in the works to be come a movie thanks to the efforts of writer/director Jack Bender – whose previous credits include Mr. Mercedes, Under The Dome, The Outsider, and the upcoming miniseries version of The Institute (more on that below). A sad and beautiful tale, the book is about Scott Carey, a heavy 40-something who one day discovers that he is quickly losing weight... but the catch is that his physical appearance remains unchanged, and the scales are unaffected by anything he has on his person.

Untitled Pet Sematary Prequel - Movie - In Development
Paramount+ is in the process of trying to establish itself as one of the dominant streamers currently on the market, and already having The Stand as an exclusive the service is developing another Stephen King-related project. In Febuary 2021 it was announced that Lorenzo di Bonaventura is producing a prequel to the beloved classic Pet Sematary, and Jeff Buhler (who co-wrote the 2019 remake of the horror story) has been hired to pen the screenplay. No details about the plot have been revealed.

The Running Man - Movie - In Development
The Running Man, which Stephen King originally published under the pen name Richard Bachman, was previously adapted in 1987 by director Paul Michael Glaser, but the film notably transformed the story from a dystopian thriller into an Arnold Schwarzenegger action movie (albeit a great one). As a result, it's terribly exciting that filmmaker Edgar Wright announced in February 2021 that he is now developing a new adaptation that is more faithful to the source material. Michael Bacall, who previously collaborated with Wright on Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, has been hired to write the script.

The Ten O'Clock People - Series - In Development
In February 2021, it was announced that producer Henrik Bastin, best known for the long-running Amazon Prime series Bosch, has started his own production company, and one of the first projects that is being developed is an adaptation of Stephen King's The Ten O'Clock People for the small screen. Published in the collection Nightmares & Dreamscapes, the story centers on a smoker named Pearson who, during his 10am smoke break, makes the horrifying discovery that every authority figure in the world is actually a horrific bat monster in disguise – eventually learning that it's the chemical imbalance created by the crave for nicotine that allows him to see their true forms.

The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon - Movie - In Development
Stephen King’s 1999 novella The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon will soon get the big-screen treatment. In May 2020, Village Roadshow secured the rights of the novella about a preteen girl lost in the Appalachian Trail who fantasizes about a certain Boston Red Sox pitcher, and in November 2020 it was confirmed that Lynn Ramsay will be directing the project. It's unclear when the project will start production.

The Long Walk - Movie - In Development
You would think that the first novel Stephen King ever wrote, The Long Walk (eventually published under the pseudonym Richard Bachman) would have been adapted by now, but the 1979 novel about a group of 100 teenage boys forced to march across the country remains one of the few early books by the author not yet adapted. Well, filmmaker Andre Ovredal hopes to be the one who changes that now that he has been given the reins. The project had to pump the brakes because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but Ovredal provided an update in November 2020 saying that the film is "alive and well and moving along."

Revelations - Series - In Development
The CW is reportedly in the early stages of developing Revelations, a new series based on The Revelations of ‘Becka Paulson. It was reported in July 2020 that the show is being set up as a one-hour drama and follow a protagonist who starts speaking with Jesus after accidentally shooting herself with a nail gun. The story was previously adapted as an episode of The Outer Limits in the 1990s, and starred Catherine O'Hara and Steven Weber.

Mr. Harrigan’s Phone - TV Miniseries - In Development
The powerhouse team of Ryan Murphy and Jason Blum are going to be adapting the Stephen King short story Mr. Harrigan’s Phone (featured in the 2020 collection If It Bleeds) for Netflix. The project was first announced in July 2020, and according to The Hollywood Reporter the story will follow a young boy and an older billionaire whose friendship goes beyond the grave.

Throttle - Movie - In Development
With a title like Throttle, you might think that one of the most recently announced Stephen King adaptations would be a new version of Maximum Overdrive, but instead of possessed electronics, this HBO Max original film will focus on a biker gang taking on a maniacal tractor-trailer driver on the open highway. Throttle will very much be a father and son story, but with a lot of action. News of its development was first reported in May 2020.


And much much more.

Sequel to railway children

Sequel to The Railway Children to begin filming at iconic West Yorkshire locations

Iconic West Yorkshire film The Railway Children is set to return with a sequel - more than 50 years after it was released

Filming will begin for The Railway Children Return on May 10, using locations from the original film.

These locations, which are just over the border from Calderdale, include Oakworth Station, Haworth, The Brontë Parsonage and parts of the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway.

BAFTA and Emmy Award winning Jenny Agutter will resume her role as Roberta ‘Bobbie’ Waterbury from the original The Railway Children and the film will also star BAFTA winning Sheridan Smith, Academy Award nominee and BAFTA winning Tom Courtenay as well as a new generation of Railway Children.

Inspired by one of the most beloved British family films of all time, The Railway Children Return will be an enchanting adventure for a new generation bringing a contemporary sensibility to a classic story and combining British cast with stunning locations.

The film will take audiences on an exciting and heart-warming journey, in which a group of children are evacuated to a Yorkshire village during World War II, where they encounter a young soldier, who like them, is far away from home.

The Railway Children Return has been written by BAFTA winning Danny Brocklehurst and produced by BAFTA and award-winning Jemma Rodgers for STUDIOCANAL.

The film is scheduled for release in April 2022.

I hope you've all enjoyed streaming new movies because according to the CEO of the British Cinema Association in the new Empire that will be coming to an end as the studios have made nothing doing simul-streams in comparison to putting films on in cinemas.

Can't say I'm surprised they haven't been making money. Huge difference from watching at home and watching at cinema

They sound like a prick. Well excuse me for watching new films like this during a pandemic because the cinemas have been closed.

No, not really a prick. It's the same for me when football grounds are open Sky and BT won't be showing every game. It's just a return to the 'old' normal.

I always thought it was a short term thing anyway. To be fair the pricing has probably been off putting for a lot of people anyway, £15-20 for a RENTAL of a movie. Might be ok for a family film if you're sitting down with a few people, it's cheaper than a trip to the cinema, the car parking, the snacks etc. If you're a film fan who usually goes on your own (me) that's 2-3 times more than a ticket.

I'm looking forward to seeing films on the big screen again, I have missed it. Doubt I'll be rushing back next week though.
