Actors Chiwetel Ejiodar, Karen Gillan and Jacob Tremblay have joined the cast of the upcoming Stephen King's The Life of Chuck adaptation helmed by filmmaker Mike Flanagan. The production commenced in Alabama earlier in October, with an interim agreement. Tom Hiddleston and Mark Hamill are also part of the cast.
Production venture QWGmire is attached to the project. Molly C Quinn, Matthew M Welty and Elan Gale of the venture, said in a statement, "We are thrilled to partner with Mike and Trevor [Macy] on this project. Mike is a master storyteller and we can’t wait to bring his inspirational adaptation of Stephen King’s short story to audiences.”
The Life of Chuck by King is one of the three interconnected stories of the author's anthology If It Bleeds. The story revolves around Charles Krantz's life, but in reverse, starting from his death at 39 to his childhood living in a haunted house.
