Stephen King’s Bag of Bones To Begin Filming This Summer

The film version of Stephen King’s novel “Bag of Bones” may be shot in the author’s home state of Maine. Director Mick Garris and producer Mark Sennet are planning to meet Tuesday with Gov. John Baldacci and other officials about the possibility of expanding financial incentives available from the state. Maine film industry advocates say “Bag of Bones” will be a $20 million production, and half of the budget would be spent in Maine. Filming could begin as early as this summer. The novel is set in a lakeside summer home in a remote part of Maine where an author suffering from writer’s block dredges up dark secrets following his wife’s death.

  1. We have a general store in Waterford Maine (Springers General Store)
    If you are looking to film a store scene we would love to be considered.

    Thank you

  2. Bag of Bones is one of my most favorite things in the world… not just my favorite book, lol. I’ve been trying to collect information on the movie. Some of it might be incorrect but I’d like to share it with you.
    Bag of Bones will not be shot in Maine. The bill was denied. Instead the movie will be shot in Michigan.
    It’s too bad that the movie wasn’t able to be shot in Maine. This is because if the bill WAS passed the bag of bone movie people would have already started shooting last summer like you said.
    For some more cool info check out the link bellow.

    p.s. that link tells the cast!

  3. Its about time I am in high school and I have been waiting for them to make a movie over this yes!!!!!!!! (=
