    That's not unprecedented. John Carpenter optioned Christine well before it was published, and the film was out about eight months after the novel.

    Ben Mendelsohn Will Star in HBOís Small Screen Adaptation of Stephen Kingís ďThe OutsiderĒ

    Back in May of this year, Scriber released Stephen Kingís The Outsider, the prolific authorís latest novel, and itís already now getting a small screen adaptation from HBO!

    Variety reports that Ben Mendelsohn (Ready Player One) will star in the series adaptation, with Jason Bateman on board to direct the first two episodes. Bateman will also exec produce.

    In the series, a seemingly straightforward investigation into the gruesome murder of a local boy leads a seasoned cop and an unorthodox investigator to question everything they believe to be real, as an insidious supernatural force edges its way into the case.

    Media Rights Capital is the studio and will produce along with Aggregate and Temple Hill Entertainment. Mendelsohn will also produce in addition to starring. Richard Price serves as writer and executive producer. Marty Bowen of Temple Hill will also executive produce along with Michael Costigan of Aggregate and Jack Bender.

    Great to see it go to HBO. Finally King has started to get premiere-level treatment.

    Really? I rather enjoyed it and thought it was a better (recent years) effort. At least since, "Dr. Sleep", which I enjoyed immensely.




    Edit: Especially liked that he appears to be keeping the "Finders Keepers Agency" open for business!!!!

    Really looking forward to Dr. Sleep as I loved the novel. GBB was better for me than The Outsider. Currently listening to Elevation and it isn't blowing my hair back either.

    If you liked "The Shining", which is likely I think you'll enjoy DS. Felt liked going home again to me. lol

    To each his/her own, but I thought GBB & Elevation were really just so-so short stories not novels. JMHO of course.

    Yeah found both of them to be a bit underwhelming. Elevation at least would have been served better in some sort of anthology like 'Different Seasons'. With
    Gwendy' I was hoping for a payoff that it didn't really deliver (mainly in regards to R.F.)

    With The Outsider... I found the first half to be very compelling but at the midway point it just ran out of steam.
    Spoiler:
    That it was a supernatural thing was inevitable but I just found the villain to be fairly unremarkable.

    Agreed.
    x 2. Yeah, he could have delved into the Shape changers' history a little more. I was actually kind of intrigued with the villain and would have enjoyed a little more back story/history. Otherwise though I did enjoy both "halves" of the story. For me I think it was the "Finder's Keepers" element that saved the 2nd half.

    Stephen King's novel The Outsider debuted last year and was shortly after announced as earning a series for HBO. Ben Mendelsohn was previously announced as the star, with an additional 10 cast members confirmed by Deadline.

    Cynthia Erivo (Bad Times at the El Royale), Bill Camp (The Looming Tower), Mare Winningham (George Wallace), Paddy Considine (The Ferryman), Julianne Nicholson (Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders), Yul VŠzquez (I Am the Night), Jeremy Bobb (The Knick), and Marc Menchaca(Ozark) join the cast as regulars, while Hettienne Park (Hannibal) and Michael Esper (Trust) are confirmed as recurring performers.

    Erivo is set to play Holly Gibney, Camp as Howie Gold, Winningham as Jeannie Anderson, Considine as Claude Bolton, Nicholson as Mercy Maitland, VŠzquez as Yunis Sablo, Bobb as Alec Pelley, and Menchaca as Jack Hoskins. Park and Esper will star as Tomika Collins and Bill Samuels.

    In the novel, "An eleven-year-old boyís violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint Cityís most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad."

    "As the investigation expands and horrifying answers begin to emerge, Kingís propulsive story kicks into high gear, generating strong tension and almost unbearable suspense. Terry Maitland seems like a nice guy, but is he wearing another face? When the answer comes, it will shock you as only Stephen King can."

    The series comes from Richard Price, who has previously written for The Night Of and The Wire, which will ensure that The Outsider will offer audiences a compelling tale of murder and intrigue.

    For more than 40 years, King's works have been the inspiration behind movies and TV series, with recent years seeing a swell in adaptations that confirm this trend isn't slowing down anytime soon. The author has previously revealed that, when it comes to adaptations of his works, he enjoys them more when they stick closely to what he chronicled in the original stories.

    "I think that theyíre the best when they stick close to the books because, I donít know, I feel a proprietary interest in that," King revealed to the Associated Press. "I always think that some of the adaptations that donít work that well are ones where they buy the concept, the basic concept, but then say well yes but weíll do this, that and the other thing to it. So I always feel a little bit like they bought my launching pad and put their own rocket up, and sometimes the rocket explodes... The ones that I like the best are the ones where they stick close to the story and where I see changes and things that have been altered and I say to myself, 'I wish Iíd thought of that.'"

    There is no production schedule nor platform attached, so we likely shouldn't expect the series to debut until sometime next year.

    I'm so disappointed that Justine Lupe is not getting the chance to continue her portrayal of Holly Gibney. I have loved her work in the first two Mr. Mercedes seasons. From a fanbase standpoint, I think it's a big mistake.
