On a completely different note...

Those of you who have known me for a while know that I am a very keen fan of Stephen King and his various works. While browsing the Internet Movie Database this morning I found a neat little piece of news. It seems that Anthony Hopkins will be playing Ted Brautigan in a movie adaptation of Stephen King's compilation novel Hearts In Atlantis. I have to be rather amused at the tag line, "What if one of life's great mysteries moved in upstairs?"

To the best of my knowledge this is the first adaptation of a Stephen King novel that will come even remotely close to touching on the Gunslinger universe, and I'm eager to see how they handle this very complex story. Not to mention it's going to be weird to see the man who played Hannibal "The Cannibal" Lecter portraying a character that is almost 180 degrees around from that role.
