Stephen King’s latest novel, The Outsider, has already been optioned for a television adaptation by Media Rights Capital. The Outsider was only released on May 22nd but has already received plenty of critical acclaim. The novel focuses on a well-liked teacher accused of brutally murdering an 11-year old girl. Investigating the case is Detective Ralph Anderson who finds that although the suspect’s DNA was found at the scene of the crime, he has an iron-clad alibi. Thus begins a tale that mixes together elements of crime fiction, police procedural and, of course, King’s own classic touch.
So many of Stephen King’s works have been translated onto screen that the prolific author has arguably done as much for the world of television and film as he has for literature. From classics such as The Shawshank Redemption, The Shining and The Green Mile to horror staples like Pet Sematary and It, King adaptations are ever-present on both the big and small screens. However, they don’t always succeed. The Dark Tower quickly fell by the wayside despite initial hype and recent TV efforts such as Under The Dome and The Mist experienced mixed fortunes before ultimately being cancelled.
