Frank Darabont Has Another King Flick in Him?

And if you guys haven't read this one, yet ... do so.

Frank Darabont is two-for-two when it comes to Stephen King adaptations (The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile). His third one, The Mist, looks pretty darn creepy so far — so what’s next? Any of you King fanatics remember the fantastic story The Long Walk?

More of a short novel than a short story, The Long Walk is about a futuristic competition in which 100 young men start walking down a highway in Maine — and they stop when there’s only one living survivor. The story resides in King’s "The Bachman Books," and it’s absolutely worth reading (two or three times).

And it looks like if Mr. Darabont has his wish, The Long Walk will be his next King flick. Here’s a snippet of Bloody-Disgusting’s Comic Con coverage: "During an interview to promote Dimension Films’ upcoming Stephen King adaptation, The Mist, director Frank Darabont revealed to that he is in fact going to helm Stephen King’s The Long Walk once he has completed Fahrenheit 451."

That’s pretty much all the news we have on this adaptation, but I do know that it’s been a passion project for Darabont for several years now. Which means the movie will probably be fantastic … once it finally hits the screens.
