Scott Derrickson To Direct Stephen King’s The Breathing Method

Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Pictures has teamed with Sinister director and co-writer Scott Derrickson on a screen adaptation of the Stephen King novella Breathing Method.

They’ve secured an option on King’s work from the author and the script will be written by Scott Teems.

The novella was part of the 1982 King collection Different Seasons and was the only story in the volume that hasn’t yet been adapted. It focuses on an elderly physician named Dr. Emlyn McCarron who recounts an incident in his career of a patient who was determined to give birth to her illegitimate child, despite her financial difficulties and the social stigma in the 1930s. The patient turns to the doctor because of the book he has written about the Breathing Method, a system to help women through childbirth. She grows close with the doctor, who finds that she is so determined to have the child through the method that she lingers on even after a horrific accident on the way to the hospital.
