Eli Roth Wants To Adapt A Stephen King Novel

Between his vigilante thriller Death Wish and his family-friendly fantasy flick The House with a Clock in Its Walls, 2018 has seen director Eli Roth branching out into some new territory, but it’s surely only a matter of time before the call of horror beckons once more. In fact, the Cabin Fever helmsman has already mentioned that he’d be totally game to adapt some of Stephen King’s work if a good opportunity ever emerged.

In an interview with ComicBook.com, Roth expressed his admiration for the so-called King of Horror, though he also showed concern that many of the projects he’d be keen on bringing to the screen have already been claimed by other filmmakers.

“I mean, a lot of the ones that I’m particularly interested in, other people are currently sitting in those parking spaces. But if they become available, I would do it.”

The House with a Clock in its Walls: Exclusive Behind-the-Scenes Clip

Don Kaye Nov 27, 2018

See how a magic chair became one of the major characters in Eli Roth’s supernatural family film.

One of the more unusual films to come out this fall was The House with a Clock in its Walls, based on the beloved 1973 children’s novel by John Bellairs. What made the movie more interesting than usual was the fact that it was directed by Eli Roth, the horror auteur best known for hard-r gorefests such as Hostel and The Green Inferno.

Making his first PG-13 movie, Roth wanted to specifically channel the spirit of classic Amblin films from the 1980s (especially since the movie came out under the Amblin banner). His take on the story -- about an orphaned boy who goes to live with his warlock uncle in a house hiding a terrible secret -- was aided tremendously by stellar performances from Jack Black as the

Christmas Comes Early For ‘The Grinch’; ‘Overlord’ Proves Zombies and History Don’t Mix

Christmas Comes Early For ‘The Grinch’; ‘Overlord’ Proves Zombies and History Don’t Mix
There’s always room for a familiar hit at the box office. “The Grinch,” from Universal’s animated division Illumination Entertainment, beat out two live-action studio releases. This is the fifth adaptation of a Dr. Seuss classic in the last 18 years, and it bested the combined gross for World War II zombie film “Overlord” and “The Girl in the Spider’s Web,” the second English-language Lisbeth Salander adaptation, by a 350 percent margin.

With $66 million from “The Grinch,” that represented about 40 percent of the weekend’s $161 million total gross. Compared to last year, that’s a 10 million dollar improvement, but the pace will be tough to maintain: Last year had “Justice League,” “Coco,” and a Star Wars film still to come.

The Grinch” is the third-biggest opening among the Dr. Seuss films, behind the live-action version in 2000 and “The Lorax” in 2012. Its release date isn’t necessarily prime for a family
