Good and Bad News about two of Stephen King’s Adaptions

I will start off with the bad news first. The HBO show The Outsiders isn’t coming back. I personally thought that show was boring and I couldn’t continue watching after so many episodes in season one, so I would have been shocked if it did come back for a season 2. I got this news from Though I do feel bad for those who were invested in the show that it left off on a cliffhanger and you most likely won’t know what happened unless you read the book.

There is good news about another adaption of Stephen King. His book The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon is being adapted into a film. Female director Lynn Ramsey is set to do the film adaption. The book has been optioned by Hollywood for a long time starting back in 2005. Knowing Hollywood though, there are so many projects either in development hell for several years, as well as everything being remade, rebooted, sequeled and prequeled to death as well as spin-offs.

 Also according to The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon is a survivor tale/psychological horror novel that follows a nine-year-old girl named Trisha McFarland who gets lost when she goes out hiking with her brother and recently-divorced mother. A clever kid, she uses he smarts to survive, and keeps her spirits up listening to a baseball game featuring her favorite player, pitcher Tom Gordon, on her Walkman, but her problems become exponentially greater with time, and making matters worse is that she begins to have what seem like hallucinatory visions in the forest.


Lynne Ramsay is an exceptionally exciting choice to make the adaptation based on her past work, which showcase a dark sensibility that should be a fantastic match for the material. For those who aren’t familiar with her work, she made her feature debut in 1999 with the acclaimed Ireland-set drama Ratcatcher, and she followed that up with 2002’s Morvern Callar, but her big breakout came in 2011 with the release of the utterly disturbing thriller We Need To Talk About Kevin, starring Tilda Swinton and Ezra Miller. I hope for fans of Stephen King and psychological horror that this bit of news has you excited minus the bad news of course. I hope everyone is hanging in there and keeps reading great books as we are on our way to a second lockdown in many places due to rises in corona. Sleep well or have a Good Morning depending on where you are in the world and as always happy reading!
