‘King On Screen’ Documentary Will Hit Theaters This Summer

by Thomas Tuna

It all started with Carrie.

King on Screen–a new documentary highlighting the cinematic adaptations of Stephen King’s works–will land in theaters this summer (no exact date yet) from Dark Star Pictures, according to a report on Deadline.

The film–approved by the horror master himself and directed by Daphne Baiwir–will enjoy a digital release this fall after its theatrical debut.

King on Screen will give horror fans a chance to see various filmmakers discuss how they brought King’s classic stories to the screen–delving into both the successful adaptations and those that were less than memorable.

Among those interviewed for the doc are Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption), Mick Garris (ABC’s The Stand), Mike Flanagan (Gerald’s Game, Doctor Sleep) and Greg Nicotero (CreepshowMisery).

King–who has had more than 80 of his novels and short stories adapted to the big and small screen–will next see The Boogeyman come to theaters June 2. The feature–from 20th Century Studios and 21 Laps–is directed by Rob Savage from a screenplay by Mark Heyman.
