You can never get too much Stephen King.
The Life of Chuck–another entry in Stephen King’s 2000 horror anthology If It Bleeds–is getting a film adaptation from writer/director Mike Flanagan (Doctor Sleep, Gerald’s Game), and will start filming later this month, according to a report on Gulf Coast Media.
The film–expected to start shooting Oct. 16–will film in various locations in Alabama. Production is set to last around four weeks.
Tom Hiddleston (Loki) stars as the title character, with Mark Hamill of Star Wars fame playing Albie. The film reportedly will be similar in tone to other King masterworks as Stand By Me and The Green Mile.
The published The Life of Chuck consists of three separate stories that tell the tale of Charles Krantz in reverse–starting with his death from a brain tumor at age 39 and winding up with his childhood in a haunted house.
