A couple of years ago George Romero said he couldn’t get The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon done. No one was interested and Hollywood thought it was ‘too soft’. Well, now it seems to be happening.
Sanibel Films, the production company of late horror legend George A. Romero and his former wife Chris Romero, announced Tuesday that it is collaborating with Vertigo Entertainment and Origin Story to produce a film adaptation of The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon.
“I’m thrilled that my book is being brought to the screen, and that George’s company is involved. Chris Forrest (Romero) has worked long and hard to make this project happen,”
No writer, director, cast or release date has been announced yet.

At the Television Critics Association director Jack Bender talked about if we were to see Brady Hartsfield (Harry Treadaway)...
I’d rather not say whether we are going to actually behold Mr. Treadaway or not.
...and if this the third season of Mr Mercedes is really the last season.
It will really depend if Audience Network feels they have enough subscribers watching Mr. Mercedes to justify keeping it going. I have confidence that writers David E. Kelley and Jonathan Shapiro can make up their own Bill Hodges story without a Stephen King book to base it on.
He also talked about if Bruce Dern's part is just a cameo and how Morris is the new Brady.
