Stephen King fans may rejoice or despair at the news that two more of the old fella's novels are being adapted into a new supernatural TV show and a feature movie. Deadline have reported that King's novel 'Under the Dome', written in 2009, is set to be turned into a TV series for Showtime. The DreamWorks Television production will be penned by 'Lost' writer and producer Brian K. Vaughan. In addition to this news the word on the street, well from Variety anyway, is that Stephen King's novel 'Rose Madder' is set to be turned into a feature. The movie is being ramped up by the new partnership between Palomar Pictures and Grosvenor Park who intend on making a 3 picture deal (one of which will include 'Rose Madder'). The adaption will will be penned by 'In America' scribe Naomi Sheridan.
"'Under the Dome' is a supernatural thriller that revolves around locals at a Maine vacation spot who battle one another when a force field suddenly surrounds their town and cuts them off from the rest of the world."
"'Rose Madder' is the story of Rose Daniels. After 14 years of being beaten, Rose wakes up one morning and leaves her husband -- but she keeps looking over her shoulder, because Norman has the instincts of a predator."
