So I can’t wait to see it! The director said there was also a seven-minute monologue by another actor that he cut from the film.

He recalled: “I had to call the actor and tell him ‘I’m sorry, you did right, I did wrong. I wrote a scene that said a lot of things out loud that I shouldn’t have said out loud because it would have been all there, and it was all there without words.'”

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. “

Karen Gillanone of the film’s stars, saw a rough cut of it and previously said it made her “cry for days.”

“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.”

You think, ‘Oh, Mike Flanagan, Stephen King, this thing is just going to be the most horrible, terrifying thing you’ve ever seen.’ [But] it’s so beautifully rendered, heartfelt, the drama, the performances,” he said Late night with the devil star Dastmalchian in a new interview with Gizmodo.

He continued: “The cast in this film is deep. [Matthew] Lillard has a moment in this movie that breaks my heart. Karen Gillan, another one who I think treads that incredible ski slope between her small independent art films and then the big studio budget stuff. One of the best actors in Hollywood right now. Kate Siegel, I mean, that’s it [many] Great people! Ah, what a joy.”
