Jonathan Demme has walked away from adapting the Stephen King time travel book 11/22/63.
The Silence of the Lambs director had secured the rights to produce, write and direct a screen adaptation but confirmed with The Playlist that he was now off the project after not seeing eye to eye with King regarding what the film should be.
“This is a big book, with lots in it. And I loved certain parts of the book for the film more than Stephen did. We’re friends, and I had a lot of fun working on the script, but we were too apart on what we felt should be and what be should be out of the script,” he told the site.
The novel sees the main character return to the 1960s to try and prevent the assassination of President Kennedy.
