Stephen King's THE BONE CHURCH is Being Developed as a Series and David Ayer is Producing
We've got another series coming based on a narrative poem that Stephen King originally wrote in the 1960s. It's called The Bone Church and the author revisited the poem and published it in his anthology novel, The Bazaar Of Bad Dreams.
The right to the story was acquired by producers Chris Long (Mr. Mercedes) and David Ayer (Suicide Squad) and it will be developed under their Cedar Park Entertainment banner.
In the story, "an adventurer organizes an expedition deep into a vast jungle land to locate the mythic Bone Church. They discover a secret not meant for the eyes of strangers. Only three of the 32 travelers escaped with their lives in a tale narrated by one of the survivors, who tells stories from a bar stool to patrons who’ll buy him drinks."
I've actually never read this story, but it sounds intriguing! I'm going to have to check it out! It certainly sounds like it could make a great series!
King and his stories are more popular than ever, especially after the success of IT and a slew of great TV series that have been developed over the past couple of years. As for some of the other upcoming projects, we have IT: Chapter 2, the upcoming Hulu series Castle Rock, and Doctor Sleep, which is King’s sequel to The Shining.
