Another Stephen King Flick: This Time It's "Insomnia"

by | July 2, 2007 | Comments

No relation to the Christopher Nolan crime thriller of the same name.

It’s one of Stephen King‘s most difficult books (and one of my least favorites, frankly), but it looks like "Wrong Turn" director Rob Schmidt will be bringing the author’s "Insomnia" to the big screen. Apparently Mr. King was a big fan of "Wrong Turn," which helped the director land the new gig.

For those who’ve not read the 700+ page novel, it’s about a recent widower who can’t sleep — and then begins hallucinating — and then realizes that he’s not actually hallucinating at all. Suffice to say it’s a really weird book, but I’m very curious to see what Mr. Schmidt can do to it for the big screen.

Stan Winston
has been contracted to deliver some effects work for the project, but that’s all we have so far: Schmidt, King, Winston. More on this one as new news becomes available.
