Josh Boone is kind of a important Stephen King fan, and it’s that fandom as well as devotion to the author’azines works that made it easier for Boone land the leading gig on the long-developing adaptation of The Stand. Although Boone currently sold the author about his ambitious toss for that novel (which could or may not contain a miniseries in addition to one or two films), the manager has pushed that project back to handle another King adaptation first: Revival.
Deadline reports in which The Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone has written any screenplay for a giant screen adaptation of Revival, your 2012 sci-fi / terror novel by Stephen King. Boone and his Mid-World Productions banner (a reputation that nods to King’utes Dark Tower series) will build the project with Universal.
Although some of King’s more recent works have been divisive involving even the most devout fans, Revival is a strong, simple and effective story. It follows a preacher known as Reverend Jacobs who loses their faith when his or her wife and little one are tragically slain. Soon, his activity of playing around along with electrical currents devolves straight into total obsession, eventually driving him to the brink of insanity as he sets seem to conduct his nearly all horrific and hazardous experiment yet. Also involved in the story is really a man named Jamie, who complies with Jacobs at three key points in his life, along with who receives the help of the fallen preacher in just a minute of dire require.
There’s some smart homage at work inside Revival, which borrows a really familiar horror narrative and transforms this into a contemporary account of grief in addition to desperation. Boone has apparently already lined up celebrities for the two top roles in Revival, however their identities haven’t been revealed.
Boone still intentions of adapting The Stand, a project that’ersus been rumored in order to involve at least a couple films and perhaps a television series. Warner Bros. let the proper rights to The Stand lapse, therefore, the project has stumbled back at CBS Films. Boone reportedly features verbal commitments from many actors for major roles, though nothing at all official yet.
In accent directing and scripting the two of these King projects, Boone is definitely reportedly attached to a good adaptation of King’ohydrates mystery-fantasy novel Lisey’s Story. He’utes also developing Fox’s X-Men: The revolutionary Mutants movie and an edition of Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles. Out of all of these initiatives, Revival will be the quickest for Boone to get into production, also it should give us really an idea about what to expect from his telling involving The Stand.
