  1. Okay, this is sort of off topic, but I just read the most interesting article from Lilja's Library.

    The Mist as a TV series?

    Looks like Bob Weinstein and Frank Darabont is doing a TV version of The Mist.

    Bob Weinstein, interviewed separately from his brother, said he was developing original projects that would be in tune with his horror- and action-oriented Dimension brand, along with several shows based on movies he has overseen for the company. He is preparing a pilot based on the “Scream” films for MTV, for instance, and developing a proposed 10-part series with Frank Darabont, based on Dimension’s film version of Stephen King’s “The Mist.”

    The link to the Library page which has more info can be found here:

    As for the idea itself. Well, I don't know. Is this going to be a remake? If so, does that mean Darabont wasn't entirely satisfied with the film? I think it was fine, the only problems being the ending and I think the Mrs. Carmody character could have been portrayed a bit more nuanced. Otherwise it was okay enough, I guess, though I would like to see just those two aspects worked on.

    However, I don't know one way or the other on this one. Any thoughts?


  2. I stand by the thought that there is already enough untouched King material that it is pointless to keep remaking already successful films. It just reveals a certain visionlessness in Hollywood. A current generation that is afraid to take risks with new ideas.
