Karen Gillan cried for days after watching Mike Flanagan’s adaptation of Stephen King’s THE LIFE OF CHUCK

Mike Flanagan (Doctor Sleep, Midnight Mass, The Haunting of Hill House) directed a film adaptation of Stephen King’S The Life of Chuck. He is currently in post-production on the project, e Karen Gillanone of the film’s stars, saw a rough cut of it and it made her “cry for days.”

During a recent interview with GamesRadar, Gillan, who previously worked with Flanagan on Oculus, said: “You know what, he didn’t seem that different. I was thinking, ‘OK, how has he changed? He’s done so many things.’ . [It] I felt the same! We were back in Alabama as if we had never left. If there was any difference, I guess he just felt more… I mean, he was relaxed the first time, but maybe he wasn’t, he was just pretending to be relaxed. But no, it was just the same Mike Flanagan, brilliant and the film is absolutely incredible. I saw an unfinished version of it and literally didn’t stop crying for days. In a good way.”

Gilln continued: “It’s a cathartic experience. It’s someone facing the end of their life, and it’s told in a very imaginative way, and it’s just beautiful. It’s a celebration of life, I suppose. I think we could all do with a a little bit of that.”

The film is based on the short story from King’s 2020 anthology If it bleeds“The Life of Chuck consists of three separate stories linked to tell the biography of Charles Krantz in reverse, beginning with his death from a brain tumor at age 39 and ending with his childhood in a supposedly haunted house. “

According to the production, the project will draw inspiration from a tonal point of view Stand by Me, The Shawshank Redemption AND The green mile.

The film is also the protagonist Tom Hiddleston, Marco Hamill, Chiwetel Ejiofor (Doctor Strange), AND Jacob Tremblay (Doctor Sleep), Jacob Tremblay, My Sara, Matthew Lillard, Beatitude of the Trinity, Harvey Guillen, Rahul Kohli, David DastmalchianAND Heather Langenkamp.

I’m incredibly excited to see how this movie turns out! This is a truly fantastic story and I have no doubt that Flanagan did that story justice by adapting it for the big screen.
