Stephen King's Revival to get movie adaptation 

Mike Flanagan along with Trevor Macy will be filming the author's 2014 novel for Warner Bros

Published: 10th May 2020

After the psychological horror thriller Doctor Sleep, director Mike Flanagan will next be adapting Stephen King's 2014 novel, Revival.

Flanagan along with Trevor Macy will be filming the author's 2014 novel for Warner Bros.

Flanagan is writing the script, and he has the option to direct it as well. Flanagan and Macy will produce through Intrepid Pictures.

The story is about the relationship between a 'heroin-addicted musician and a dubious faith healer with a hidden agenda'. The latter tries to find a way to communicate with his departed wife and child, but ends up connecting with something horrific. 

Recently, Flanagan and Macy adapted Doctor Sleep based on King's 2013 novel with the same name, a sequel to horror classic, The Shining. Flanagan wrote, directed and edited Doctor Sleep, which starred Ewan McGregor in the role of Danny Torrance and Rebecca Ferguson as the main antagonist.
