AceShowbiz - Yet another Stephen King novel is getting the big screen treatment - the author's book "The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon" is next for an adaptation.
Several of the horror and suspense writer's novels, including "The Shining", "It", "Pet Sematary", and "Carrie", have been made into films and miniseries, and now his 1999 work is next.
The story follows nine-year-old girl Trisha McFarland, who gets lost on the Appalachian Trail in the eastern U.S. during a family trip. While the director and screenwriters have not yet been named, bosses at the production company of late horror legend George A. Romero will develop the project along with filmmakers at Vertigo Entertainment and Origin Story.
"I'm thrilled that my book is being brought to the screen, and that George's company is involved. Chris Forrest (Romero) has worked long and hard to make this project happen," King said in a statement.
