Untapped Stephen King Novel Coming to the Screen


Never expected this to get adapted…

There are a few Stephen King novels I never expected to reach the screen. “Rose Madder” was one of them, because honestly, I never thought it was one of his best works. Then again, that hasn’t stopped a lot of King adaptations, now has it?

Alas, the 1995 tome is being developed for the screen by Palomar Pictures.

The production outfit has hired Naomi Sheridan to write the script. Her only other screenwriting credit to date is In America, which her father, Jim Sheridan (My Left Foot) directed in 2002. Perhaps she can elevate the material…

The novel told of Rose Daniels, a woman on the run from her abusive husband who discovers she can enter the realm of one of her oil paintings and return as someone else.
