It seems like every single Stephen King novel, short story, and grocery list is becoming a feature or TV series these days. Not that I’m complaining. I’m just passing along the news via Variety that another King tale is in the works over at Netflix.
Yes, Netflix has just picked up the rights to Stephen King and son Joe Hill’s novella In the Tall Grass with Vincenzo Natali (Splice) set to write/direct and James Marsden to star.
I haven’t read the short story myself, but judging by the synopsis below it sounds like just the kind of King tale that I love to read. In fact, I’m thinking this just made the top of my must-read list. Bring it on.
Steve Hoban (Splice), Jimmy Miller (The Lazarus Effect), and M. Riley produce the film which is set to begin filming in Toronto this summer.
In the Tall Grass was first published in 2012 and centers on a pair of inseparable siblings on her cross-country trip who stop at a field of tall grass after they hear a little boy calling for help.
