STEPHEN KING’S THE LONG WALK HAS FOUND ITS DIRECTOR

Posted on: May 27th, 2019

Is it time for more Stephen King news? Always! André Øvredal (director of The Autopsy of Jane Doe and the upcoming Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark) has been tapped to direct New Line’s feature film adaptation of the King novella The Long Walk.

Published in 1979 under King’s pseudonym Richard Backman, The Long Walk is set in a dystopian future America in which 100 teens must compete in a gruelling annual competition—leaving only one alive.

The film adaptation was penned by James Vanderbilt. Bradley Fischer and William Sherak are producing. New Line is also behind the upcoming IT: Chapter Two and a remake of Salem’s Lot—and considering how successful It was at the box office, we wouldn’t be surprised to see more King adaptations joining the studio’s roster.
