Stephen King has given us timeless classics since 1973. Novels like The Shining, Firestarter, Carrie, IT, Cujo, The Green Mile, and The Long Walk are known by horror and thriller fans all over the world. His books have sold more than 350 million copies, and it doesn't look like he's slowing down anytime soon.
Many of King's novels have been made into movies, and even those became blockbuster hits. The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, Misery and Carrie were all either nominated for or won Academy Awards. Though King himself never received an Oscar, his stories did.
Most recently, King's IT was remade with Bill Skarsgård, and it was met with incredible reviews.
On the heels of IT's success, another Stephen King remake has been announced and the director is someone horror fans will be very familiar with.
