Skarsgard filming Castle Rock

WORCESTER — On Tuesday, Pennywise the Dancing Clown made his way to Downtown Worcester when the Heart of the Commonwealth was momentarily transformed into Stephen King’s fictitious and creepy town of “Castle Rock.”

Bill Skarsgård, best known as the evil, sewer-dwelling child predator in the Hollywood blockbuster “It,” addressed four corporate suits around a boardroom table set up in the lobby of the Mercantile Building, 100 Front St., for a scene being filmed for the original Hulu series “Castle Rock,” due out next year.

The Outsider Out In The UK June 5

Section: Book » The Outsider

Today Hodder & Stoughton announced that they will release King's next book The Outsider on June 5 2018.

Coming June 2018...

On 5 June 2018, Hodder will publish an exciting new novel from Stephen King. The Outsider is a compelling and chilling suspense novel which will delight readers of King’s bestselling Hodges trilogy.

Following the phenomenal success of his Bill Hodges series, Mr Mercedes, Finders Keepers and End of Watch, all Number 1 bestsellers, Stephen King has written an unputdownable crime thriller with a unique twist.

When an eleven-year-old boy is found murdered, forensic evidence and reliable eyewitnesses undeniably point to the town's popular Little League coach. But the jailed suspect, arrested in a public spectacle, has an alibi, and further research convinces Detective Ralph Anderson that the coach was indeed out of town. So how can he have been in two places at the same time?

‘King works his customary storytelling magic, unspooling the plot threads almost as quickly as readers can turn the pages’ – Daily Mail on End of Watch
