A brand-new Stephen King adaptation will feature Tom Hiddleston and Mark Hamill.
Life of Chuck, a short story from Stephen King’s If It Bleeds, The Life of Chuck, will star the two actors, who are best known for playing Luke Skywalker and Loki, respectively. Mike Flanagan, who previously directed Doctor Sleep and The Haunting of Hill House, will be in charge of the production.
The anthology was first published in 2020 and consists of four novellas, with The Life of Chuck divided into three acts that move in reverse chronological order. It portrays various parts of the titular character’s life as he deals with the certainty of death and other themes.
It will be the most recent film or television adaptation of King’s work, which has been shown dozens of times before. There will be a lot of similarities between The Life of Chuck and other King films, particularly Stand By Me and The Shawshank Redemption.
Before the current writer’s strike started, the script was changed. Hiddleston played the title character and Hamill played Albie, the character’s grandfather.
Hamill has been busy of late, showing up in a few Star Wars productions as well as What We Do in the Shadows and The Machine, an activity satire film set for release later this year. Hiddleston, on the other hand, continues to perform well as Loki.
There is currently no release date for The Life of Chuck.Topics #Mark Hamill #Stephen King #Stephen King adaptation #Tom Hiddleston
