Appearing on the Post Mortem Podcast, hosted by Mick Garris (director of the 1994 TV miniseries), King has shared his thoughts on this new adaptation, as well as giving a brief update on its progress.
“I like Josh Boone’s work,” said King. “I actually worked with him on his first feature (2012’s Stuck in Love). I couldn’t act in it, which is what he wanted me to do, so I had to be an audio thing. And then he did The Fault in Our Stars, which I thought showed his grasp of the medium. I like him a lot.
