Why do quite often the same actors return to SK adaptations? This is Jane's third King-film.

In the casting process is it somehow an advantage if an actor has already done a King-film before? Or are these actors simply very attracted to the material?
They move on to the audio-books as well quite often.

In the case of Cusack and Jackson it seemed a way to want to repeat the success of the previous well-received 1408, but I wonder about the other times when actors return. You could almost say to a degree that there are King-regulars.

Well I suppose these actors get sucked in by the King universe as much as anyone, or even more because there is potential material for their profession. But liking something much and actually GETTING the role are still two different things.

When someone does something truly extraordinary, like Kathy Bates, doing more of them seems not more than natural, of course. But hers is still the stand out case in this matter.
Some actors, like Morgan Freeman, are in a lot of films anyway, so it's not that surprising, but others, like Jane you don't see that often.

It looks like a good movie, but I feel the trailer gives too much away in the end. They show too much, it could perhaps have done more subtle.

oops I accidentally meant to post this here with the trailer ....

October 20, 2017, ! What a Halloween treat this is going to be ! One of my very most favorites too, and what I thought was one of the most shocking! I think by the looks of the trailer is going to be Perfect , the cast, the whole setting and the vintage look the film has, the accents of the characters, could not have been better, its sure to be one of his best adaptions to film if that trailer is any indication, and the story itself , is already a masterpiece. I cant wait!!!!!

If its possible I could experimentally post a link to my Netflix at player mode and it may can be watched here for anyone who doesn't have Netflix, not sure it would work but it has in the past accidentally and surprisingly. :zip_it: ;-D
