I ask because nearly every other Stephen King book (and a heck of a lot more) has been made into a movie, and this one seems like it would be simple to do. Sure it might be hard for a movie centered around a little girl to find a wide audience, but still this could be done so many different ways (Netflix series?) I'm just surprised it hasn't been done.

The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon, such a simple low-budget movie this could be. Basically a girl lost in the woods, a few light stunts. This could even be updated and done as a hand-held camera movie for even cheaper (although I'm not crazy about that idea). But still I'm surprised this hasn't been filmed yet. Why not?
Could be done - who do you think could do it better? (Addie or Jillian?)

A much friendlier (re: non-kinky) variation on Gerald's Game, a girl facing a threatening presence/visitor alone in the dark at one point in the story... one lost in the woods and the other 'lost at sea' if she doesn't figure out how to get out of the situation she finds herself in .. alone in the woods in a summer home, flashbacks to childhood, and in the other the child 'lost at sea' if she freezes or starves to death in the deep forest...
