Tom Hiddleston & Mark Hamill To Star In Stephen King Adaptation ‘The Life of Chuck’ For Director Mike Flanagan

Filming for Mike Flanagan’s adaptation of Stephen King’s story The Life of Chuck is set to begin this month. It will be the third King adaptation from Flanagan after 2017’s Gerald’s Game and The Shining sequel Doctor Sleep in 2019. Flanagan is also overseeing a movie and television adaptation of King’s staggeringly large opus, The Dark Tower.

The Life of Chuck is a Stephen King tale with three separate stories linked to tell the biography of the supposedly ordinary man Charles Krantz in reverse. It begins with his death from a brain tumor at 39 and ends with his childhood in a supposedly haunted house.

Flanagan has already cast Tom Hiddleston and Mark Hammil for the movie as Chuck and Albie, respectively.

The story was first published as part of If It Bleeds, a collection of novellas first appearing in 2020. The movie is the second based on a story from it. Mr. Harrigan’s Phone was adapted by writer/director John Lee Hancock in 2021 and released on Netflix.
