Adaptation of One For the Road Accepted into the Cannes Film Festival

From Fangoria:

The 'SALEM'S LOT companion piece, produced by Tim Sullivan (2001 MANIACS), with original music by FANGORIA editor Chris Alexander, is headed to the south of France.

Directed by Paul Ward and starring PHANTASM's Reggie Bannister, the short film is adapted from a short story by King that takes place years after the events of 'SALEM'S LOT. The tale is narrated by Booth, a resident of a town neighboring Jersualem's Lot, as he recounts as he and bar owner Herb attempted to save a motorist and his family stuck in a blizzard in the despair-ridden Lot. Naturally, vampires are afoot. 

One for the Road will screen in May 2012 at Cannes.

This is the first I'm hearing about the film, but it seems like it's been screening in Europe and other places for a while now.

The official music video for the film:

The Boogeyman to be Adapted as a Dollar Baby

Filmaker Tommy Golden is currently shooting a Dollar Baby adaptation of The Boogeyman from Nightshift.

Being a local film maker is not easy and not cheap, but in the long run it is well worth it said Golden. He explains that getting the rights to film the on screen adaptation began in late September and was completed in mid December. After acquiring the rights to the story Golden moved to the next step of the process which was getting the perfect location.

No info on the release date.

The Dollar Baby program has been established by King to allow independent films made from his stories.  He charges only one dollar for the rights.

The Death of Jack Hamilton

Jamie Anderson will be directing and co-writing the Stephen King short story The Death of Jack Hamilton.  He is currently raising funding for his film and will shoot in and around York.  The film will be part of King's Dollar Baby program.  He's hoping to screen it at a festival in LA and possibly the Insomina Festival in Barcelona.

Mr Anderson said: “We’ve raised about £2,000 for the film, but we’re another three months or so away from filming, so we’re hoping to raise about £5,000 in total. The first shoot will take place in York, hopefully, although we are still in the process of securing free studio space in the city. With this being an independent production, we require as much support as possible from the general public and local businesses.”

Director Christopher Birk on Adapting Willa

Matt over at the SK Fancast got the opportunity to interview Christopher Birk about his adaptation of Willa, a short story from Just After Sunset.

CB: I think I discovered, weeks after reading it for the first and second time, that I wanted to learn more about the people at the station. I wanted to explore them and was so curious about exactly what they were doing while David and Willa were away. And the more I thought of the story the more I felt it had so many different messages. It kept growing. It wasn’t just a story, but had many more layers, I felt. As the screenplay evolved, I quickly knew that it couldn’t possibly be done as a short film.

King allows, with permission, adaptation of his short stories into independent films for $1.  He calls them Dollar Babies.  The program states that the filmakers are not allowed to profit from the films.
