King & Arcel Comment On Dark Tower

This article has been out for a few weeks but there are some quotes from King that might be of interest.

“[The movie] starts in media res, in the middle of the story instead of at the beginning, which may upset some of the fans a little bit, but they’ll get behind it, because it is the story,”


“They’re still holding on to this idea that they can do a TV series, and they’ve got it pegged for that, and it would seem everyone involved is waiting to see if the movie clicks with audiences before going all in with a massive franchise. Other people have tried fantasy spectacle. Sometimes it works, sometimes it works really well when it’s based on a series of books, like 'The Hunger Games' or 'Harry Potter,' and sometimes it doesn’t. What I have to go back to is this: We have Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, two great actors. You’ve got a great production team and Akiva Goldsman as the primary script writer. The team is in place, so we’ll hope for the best.”

Director Nikolaj Arcel said this:

“A lot of it takes place in our day, in the modern world”

You & Lilja's Library

Posted: April 29, 2016, 13:04:41

As you know (and if you didn’t you do now) Lilja’s Library celebrates 20 years this year and I want to celebrate that as much as I can. And you also know that the site wouldn’t be worth anything if no one read it. So, in order to celebrate that I want to involve you.

I want to do something similar to the photos you send in with yourself and one of King’s books but this time I want you to send in a photo of yourself and Lilja’s Library. Lilja’s Library you might ask? Yes, take a photo of yourself and Lilja’s Library in some form. It could be you in front of the computer (where you can see Lilja’s Library), it could be a photo of you and my book, it could be a photo of you and your tattoo of Marv (if anyone has one), or any other form of Lilja’s Library. Draw Marv and pose with him, read the site on your phone and take a photo of you doing it…your imagination is the limit. The rule is that Lilja’s Library and you need to be in the photo (and not just a toe or a finger, your face at least). That’s it. Not to hard right?

And to make it even more fun, one of you that send in a photo will get a prize. I will draw one of the entries at random (so it’s not a contest of who’s got the best photo) and that entry will win a prize. I can’t tell you what the prize is just yet but believe me, it will be worth it.

OK, so start sending in your photos, either by email to info[a] or post them on facebook or twitter. I will then putt them from there and post them on the site.

I hope to SEE you soon! / Lilja

Casting Has Begun on Pet Sematary Remake

Section: Film » Pet Sematary - remake

This was reported over a month ago but I had totally missed it. The remake of Pet Sematary seems to be getting off the ground. Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later) on board to direct a script he wrote with Jeff Buhler.

Speaking with Dread Central, Buhler (The Midnight Meat Train) provided a little update.

“They are currently out to cast, and they are going for some bigger names, so it’s taking some time,” said Buhler, revealing that the casting process has officially begun. We don’t yet have any way of knowing who the studio is speaking with, but it’s good to hear that they’re looking to go big with the remake. And if casting has begun, pre-production seems to be moving along smoothly.
