Stephen King the jaunt movie

Film adaptations of Stephen King stories are never a sure thing. On the one side there’s brilliant stuff like The Shining, Stand Be Me or The Shawshank Redemption. On the other side there’s disappointments such as Dreamcatcher, Thinner or 1408. Then, in the middle, there are dozens of films that have their fans, haters, and everything in between. Long story short, with the name “Stephen King” attached, you never know what you’re going to get.

Now, an old short story of King’s has been optioned for a film and it already has a pretty good start. The Jaunt, which is about a family who explores teleportation for travel to Mars, has been picked up by Brad Pitt‘s Plan B pictures. Mama director Andy Muschietti is eyed to direct.

With Josh Trank kind of busy for the next several years, his adaptation of the Sony game Shadow of the Colossus needed a new director. Sony has found one in Andy Muschietti, the director of Mama, who had recently been attached to The Mummy reboot. (Among other things.)

Russ described the game as follows back when the film first went into development: “[It] features a young male protagonist who is told that his dead love can be revived if only he kills a collection of giant beasts that reside across the countryside. He does so without question, and the player is left to eventually wonder if the kid is being played. Visually austere yet stunning, the game was a critical hit and has endured as one of the masterpieces of the PlayStation 2 generation.” Read more about the Shadow of the Colossus movie below.
