James Wan Picture

Although Stephen King is probably the most adapted living author of all time, after the huge success of last year's "It", which grossed over $700 million worldwide, King's books are more sought-after than they ever were. As a result, the author's "The Tommyknockers" might be next on Hollywood's to-do list. The book was previously adapted into a 1993 TV miniseries starring Jimmy Smits and Marg Helgenberger. Another TV adaptation was in the works at NBC a few years ago, but nothing came of it.

"The Conjuring" director James Wan, and Roy Lee, one of the producers of "It", have teamed up to to bring the sci-fi horror novel to the big screen. They have also joined forces with veteran producer Larry Sanitsky, who executive produced the 1993 miniseries and holds the screen rights to the property, and are currently shopping the project around to studios and streaming networks, including Netflix. The project's mission statement written by Sanitsky reads as follows:
"It is an allegorical tale of addiction (Stephen was struggling with his own at the time), the threat of nuclear power, the danger of mass hysteria and the absurdity of technical evolution run amuck. All are as relevant today as the day the novel was written. It is also a tale about the eternal power of love and the grace of redemption."
And for those of you who aren't familiar with King's book, here's the official synopsis:
"Something was happening in Bobbi Anderson’s idyllic small town of Haven, Maine. Something that gave every man, woman, and child in Haven powers far beyond those of ordinary mortals. Something that turned the town into a deathtrap for all outsiders. Something that is buried in the woods behind Bobbi’s house. With the help of her friend, Jim Gardener, they uncover an alien spaceship. And as they learn more about this strange discovery, the citizens of Haven begin to change: The townspeople are being welded into one organic, homicidal, and fearsomely brilliant entity in thrall to the Tommyknockers, who piloted the alien ship."

Connie Britton Picture
"American Horror Story" and "Nashville" star Connie Britton is set to star in the upcoming anthology drama series "Dirty John". Developed for Bravo, the true crime series' first season is based on a series of articles published by the Los Angeles Times about con man John Meehan, and his relationship with Debra Newell (Britton), a single mother who fell for him after meeting him on an over-50 dating site. Their romance quickly spiraled out of control with shocking consequences for Debra and her children.

The script will be written by "Chance" creator Alexandra Cunningham, whose writing credits also include episodes of "Desperate Housewives", "Bates Motel" and "Aquarius". There is also a docu series in the works about Meehan's case from Oxygen Media. The show's second season will focus on an entirely different story that has yet to be determined.

Britton currently stars in the Fox series "9-1-1" created by Brad Falchuk, Tim Minear and Ryan Murphy. On the big screen she can be seen in the dramedy "The Land of Steady Habits" opposite Ben Mendelsohn, and the drama "Mustang" alongside Matthias Schoenaerts, both due for release sometime this year.
