Stephen King On “The Outsider” & Where He Gets His Story Ideas

Stephen King, the “King of Horror,” has published more than 50 best-selling titles over the past 44 years. His latest, “The Outsider,” explores the idea of being in two places at the same time. 

King joins “CBS This Morning” to discuss what sparked the idea for his new novel and the themes he explores in it.

Stephen King Q&A: Pennywise’s Creator On Scaring The Hell Out of 2017

Stephen King Rules.

That’s what’s emblazoned on a T-shirt the young hero of Monster Squad wears in that 1987 kid-classic. It could also be the motto of 2017, and it’s one reason EW has named him one of the Entertainers of the Year.

You could practically fill another book with what a powerhouse year King has had. He’s currently on the best-seller list with Sleeping Beauties, a novel he co-wrote with his son, Owen King, a mystical plague story in which all the women of the world succumb to a cocoon-shrouded slumber, leaving the men to their own unfortunate devices.

King had another hit novella with Gwendy’s Button Box, a return to his fictional, unlucky town of Castle Rock, which he penned with friend and Cemetery Dance publisher Richard Chizmar. But several titles from his back catalog also rose up the charts thanks to some unsettling new adaptations.

It was the resurrection of Pennywise the Clown in It that truly quickened the pulse of fans around the world, minting a lot of new Constant Readers in the process. Add to that a pair of acclaimed TV series based on Mr. Mercedes and The Mist, and the Netflix adaptations of Gerald’s Game and his novella 1922, and even the lackluster reception to The Dark Tower can’t take the shine off this King renaissance.

King, who received the National Medal of Arts from President Obama in 2015, even got some more White House recognition this year when Donald Trump blocked the author on Twitter after he bombarded the president with barbs.

Entertainment Weekly caught up with Uncle Steve to talk about how it all went down – and what’s coming next.

Stephen King Discusses The Dark Tower Movie With Rolling Stone

1

“I think that it’s more likely than not that Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey will be in it,” says the author about long-awaited adaptation

Rumors of a big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s epic Dark Tower saga have circulated for years, with everyone from Javier Bardem to Russell Crowe attached to the ambitious project. Most recently, Idris Elba has been said to be in the running for the lead role of Gunslinger Roland Deschain, with Matthew McConaughey as the mysterious Man In Black. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, King says there there might actually be real progress on the project. “It looks to me like it’s more likely than not it’ll happen at this point,” he says. “Let’s put it that way.”

Even better: The latest casting rumors appear to be correct. “I think that it’s more likely than not that Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey will be in it,” King says. “But I can’t say with any certainty. I know that they’re trying to make deals with these actors [and] with Sony, and that’s the extent of my knowledge.” In the past, plans for The Dark Tower have included a series of movies connected by a televised mini series, though its unclear if they’re still going with that approach.
