There are two names in horror that make a perfect combination: Stephen King and Mike Flanagan. Flanagan, who has already adapted the King tales Doctor Sleep and Gerald’s Game, is back with a new film based on a King story.


The Life of Chuck by King was featured in his If It Bleeds. The project has begun to announce its killer cast, featuring Tom Hiddleston. As always, you can expect Flanagan regulars to return alongside new cast members. Mark Hamill, who also starred in his new fantastic series “The Fall of the House of Usher,” is set to star alongside Karen Gillan, who starred in Flanagan’s breakout film Oculus. Jacob Tremblay, who appeared in Doctor Sleep, returns for the new project. Flanagan first-timer Chiwetel Ejiofor has also joined the cast.


The question is, will we see the return of Flanagan’s favorite, long-time cast members Henry Thomas, Carla Gugino, Rahul Kohli, Bruce Greenwood, and Kate Siegel (who is also his wife)? I wouldn’t be shocked.


The Life of Chuck tells the story of Charles Krantz in reverse, beginning with his death and ending with his childhood in a haunted house, a tale of a boy who witnessed his own death.


The Life of Chuck is not the only King project Mike Flanagan has in the works. He’s also working on a new series adaptation of King’s The Dark Tower, which spans over 4,000 pages of eight books.
