The Golden Briefcase - Stephen King

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by screenwriter (Sinister) and author (Dreams and Shadows) C. Robert Cargill aka Massawyrm to go through their latest picks of the week, the newest DVD & Blu-ray releases and much more. The main topic of the night was a discussion on the film works derived from author Stephen King, in honor of Chloe Moretz's Carrie remake hitting theaters this weekend. The guys go over King's works that have been made into movies, those that haven't made the smoothest transition from book to screen and what they would still like to see from the author.

Two of King's classic epic novels "The Stand" & "It" are supposedly in the works to be re-adapted, and whenever there are quotes from the directors or producers of these books they say the same thing that the filmmakers of the new "Carrie" say, which is, we're going to be more true to what King's novel is. Making changes to a King story is very hit and miss. There were some changes made in the film "Misery" that work for that film. I'm a huge fan of "The Dark Tower" story, but to adapt that story into a movie seems like a lose/lose situation. Its too massive, and the books from book 4 on are so reliant on references from other King books. I'm a bit worried because years ago King said he would never sell the rights to "The Dark Tower" to be made into a movie, now I'm worried he's determined to see it adapted.

Thanks for getting Cargill on guys! Really enjoyed this show. Now I'm sitting here reimagining Pacific Rim with Cargill as the screenwriter...he is the man to watch!

Schwarzenegger also does commentary for Terminator 3 where, not surprisingly, he describes what's happening in the scenes as opposed to anything inciteful about the production.
