If Stephen King wrote it, it’s ripe for adaptation here in 2018.
Deadline reports today that King’s The Bone Church, a poem the horror master wrote in the ’60s, has been acquired by Chris Long and David Ayer’s Cedar Park Entertainment. The plan? To develop the poem into a television series.
In the poem, which was revised and included in The Bazaar of Bad Dreams…
“An adventurer organizes an expedition deep into a vast jungle land to locate the mythic Bone Church. They discover a secret not meant for the eyes of strangers. Only three of the 32 travelers escaped with their lives in a tale narrated by one of the survivors, who tells stories from a bar stool to patrons who’ll buy him drinks.”
Chris Long also exec produces King adaptation “Mr. Mercedes.”
