Here is an interview with King. It’s recorded in March but wasn’t released until late May. In it King talks about The Stand TV series and what he liked and didn’t like about it. He also mentions that he’s works on a novel, that he finds difficult to write, and he also talks about a Covid-19 story he says he’s written and while doing so he also gives away the plot and ending. It’s not clear if he intends to publish it though.

Joblo reports that Elijah Wood wants to do a new version of Children of the Corn:

Another one that I feel is exciting, I know that there's already a remake coming out, but we still really love Children of the Corn. I feel like that would be an exciting thing to ... from the ground up, taking it from the novel, not remaking the movie, but actually take the short story and flesh that out in an interesting way."

Here is an interview King did with WSJ. To read it you need to subscribe but here is a teaser:

Before Stephen King gets out of bed at 6 a.m., he makes a mental inventory of the things he’s grateful for. “It’s a nice way to start the day because you get a chance to almost do a review of your current life, your current status,” says King, 73. His family, friends and dog—a corgi named Molly, whom he also refers to as the Thing of Evil—are mainstays of his list. “I try to remember to be grateful for not being in pain, you know? Because everybody has some of that in their life.” Next, he gets up and does a round of sit-ups and push-ups, shaves and eats breakfast before sitting down to write.
