Movie News Roundup: Stephen King, Kevin Spacey, Sam Raimi Get Busy


Lots of intriguing movie news coming out of Hollywood today:

  • Kevin Spacey will star in the indie film Shrink as a depressed therapist who likes to ah, partake of the ganja. (A pot-smoking therapist? That sounds familiar.) His clients in the movie will include "Hollywood characters" like Robin Williams, Keke Palmer, Laura Ramsey and Gore Vidal, among others.
  • Columbia and Sam Raimi will team up together again after their Spider-Man ventures for yet another adaptation of a Dennis Lehane novel. Lehane's books make excellent screenplays, apparently, as Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone and the upcoming DiCaprio-Scorsese project Shutter Island have all been adapted. Next up, Raimi will direct a film version of The Given Day, which follows Boston cops in 1919.
  • Speaking of adaptations, the rights to an as-yet-unpublished Stephen King novella Throttle — which he wrote with his son Joe Hill — have already been optioned. The story is about "father-son members of a motorcycle gang that's chased through the desert by an 18-wheel tanker truck." The novella will be a part of a 2009 anthology dedicated to I Am Legend author Richard Matheson.

That Stephen King project sounds a lot like Stephen Spielberg's early film, Duel. Which was amazing.
