Stephen King's 'The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon' Getting Film Adaptation
The Stephen King adaptation golden age is almost at its end
The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon has just gotten a director on board. Lynne Ramsey (You Were Never Really Here) has signed on for Village Roadshow Pictures. This is Lynne's first project since 2017, and she's partnered with Christine Romero, and producers Roy Lee, Ryan Silbert, and Jon Berg.
"On a six-mile hike on the Maine-New Hampshire branch of the Appalachian Trail, nine-year-old Trisha McFarland quickly tires of the constant bickering between her older brother, Pete, and her recently divorced mother. But when she wanders off by herself and then tries to catch up by attempting a shortcut, she becomes lost in a wilderness maze full of peril and terror."
This is a 1999 cult classic with a script written by Christy Hall, known mostly for her work on I Am Not Okay With This on Netflix.
This psychological horror is one of King's best stories, having me kind of surprised it hasn't been made into a film before.
