Two more stories from Stephen King’s collection of short stories If It Bleeds are being developed for film. According to Deadline, Rat, a story about an author hallucinating a talking rat/maybe not hallucinating is being produced and directed by Ben Stiller, who will also star.
Another story, The Life of Chuck, is in development from Darren Aronofsky’s Protozoa. The story involves an apocalyptic event, but saying anything else would spoil it.
Stephen King has been enjoying a resurgence of television and film adaptations in recent years, most recently with another story from the aforementioned collection, Mr. Harrigan’s Phone, also getting the film treatment.
