Stephen King DOESN’T WANT TO KNOW ABOUT ‘The Waiting for a Miracle’ and ‘The Shawshank Redemption’ remakes

During an interview with the Bangor Daily News, Stephen King said that he has great emotional attachment to two adaptations of his books and doesn’t even want to know about remakes of these productions. Follow Celebrilla for more updates.

These are the film versions of ‘The Waiting for a Miracle’, starring Tom Hanks and Michael Clarke Duncan, and ‘The Shawshank Redemption’, which featured Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman in the cast.

Nominated in four Oscar categories, including Best Picture, ‘The Waiting for a Miracle’ (1999) stars Hanks as a prison guard on death row whose faith is tested in his dealings with an inmate accused of rape and murder. .

However, he begins to show compassion and curiosity towards the prisoner due to his kind personality and his supposed divine gifts.

‘A Sonho de Liberdade’ (1994) follows an inmate’s attempt to escape from a maximum security prison.

Despite looking like a simple narrative, the character ends up changing the way his colleagues see life while sharing the bars with them.

The film was nominated for seven Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay.

“I wouldn’t mind moving to watch remakes of ‘The Shawshank Redemption’ or ‘The Waiting for a Miracle.’ I also have my doubts about the remake they are proposing of ‘Christine the Killer Car,’” King said.

On the other hand, the Master of Horror also acknowledged that some remakes contributed to the success of his career, such as the new version of ‘It – The Thing’.

“Look, I especially liked the ‘It’ reboot because it was free from all the regulations that ruled open TV at the time the miniseries was made, in 1990. It was a good adaptation, but the film returned the foul mouth to children and took better advantage of how supernatural horror elements can traumatize a child.”

It is worth remembering one of the next adaptations of King’s short stories is ‘The Boogeyman’ (The Boogeyman).

The latest horror news was the addition of David Dastmalchian (‘The Suicide Squad’) to the cast (via Bloody Disgusting).

Marin Ireland (‘Y: The Last Man’), Vivien Lyra Blair (‘Bird Box’) and Madison Hu (‘Voyagers’) have also been confirmed.

The story revolves around a man whose three children died under mysterious circumstances when they were very young and left alone in their respective rooms. Furthermore, the three children shouted “Bogeyman!” before they died.

Sophie Thatcher (‘Yellowjackets’) and Chris Messina (‘Birds of Prey’) star in the production.

Rob Savage, known for his work on the acclaimed horror ‘Host’, will direct. Mark Heyman penned the latest version of the script, which was already being developed by Scott Beck and Bryan Woods (‘A Quiet Place’).

Information indicates that production is scheduled to start next month and will be launched on the Hulu platform in the United States. In Brazil, there are still no details revealed about the exhibition.

The original tale is part of the ‘Shadows of the Night’ collection, which spawned other adaptations such as ‘Cursed Harvest’ and ‘Terror Train’.
