    I was going to say Crouch End but I wiki'd it to make sure it hadn't already been made into a movie and discovered TNT had adapted it and aired it as part of Nightmares and Dreamscapes: From the Stories of Stephen King. Has anyone seen this? I can't believe I missed it

    The Stand - 14 - 20 episode 1 season series on HBO.
    - Don't meld Rita & Nadine
    - Cast better actors (Keep the same Stu)
    - Give it the sense of time & tension the book had.
    - better special effects
    - Stay true to the story (Joe with Lucy...etc)

    When is Speilburg going to get Talisman filmed? I cannot wait to see that on the big screen.

    Hi,

    Welcome too the MB, and keep posting!

    Couldn't agree more; I believe ( though I'm not certain) that Spielberg is currently developing The Talisman for HBO and the small screen, although nothing is finalised.

    Long days and pleasant nights

    Thanks for the welcome John.

    Small screen would work too.

    Tony.

    I would also love to see The Long Walk made as a film - if done properly I think it would be amazing.

    I'd also love to see a decent version of The Shining (sorry Kubrick and made for true movies with Rebecca De Mornay) and also a remake of The Running Man that was in keeping with the themes of the book. Ooohh and Rage. If done with attention to detail that could be a film to knock you sideways!

    LOL you've got me going now and the inner director is displaying itself in not a very favourable light as I imagine my own interpretation of ALL SK stories!!! Heh Heh.

    It - should have good acting, should be at least 2-and-half-hour long, should have good special effects and suspense
    The Stand - should be just as long as It, good acting, good special effects and the feel of
    Rage - great acting,, should not be more than 2-and-half-hours long, suspense
    The Long Walk - same as Rage
    Bag of bones - same as Rage

    Bag of Bones definitely!
    And I totally agree that Rose Madder is under appreciated!
    The remake of IT should be good, with modern filming they could really intensify the horror!
    I hope they include more of the details of the book like the werewolf, the mummy, the bird and the leper.
    Pennywise needs to be good too, that might be hard, finding someone to match Curry :/

    None! Movies ruin stories. Unless it was written as a screenplay, then I don't think any of his stories should be turned into movies. It popularizes his name and makes him a ****load of money, so of course he lets it happen regardless.
