The Long Walk is a way overdue adaptation!!
It could be the next Stand By Me/Shawshank.
I am always gutted that films don't do the novels justice and only a few have hit the mark, Shawshank, Green Mile, Stand by Me spring to mind.
The rest have mainly been trash 'B' movie films not worthy of the writing (although Stephen has appeared in a number of them!!).
I hope the films will be worthy of the books, particularly The Long Walk as it is one of my favourite stories.
