Walking Dead actor joins Stephen King adaptation

December 2nd, 2012 by bash Comments

The Walking Dead actor Chandler Riggs and Super 8’s Joel Courtney will star in an adaptation of Stephen King’s Mercy.

According to Heat Vision, the two actors will join Frances O’Connor in the film which will be directed by Peter Cornwell, from a script by Matt Greenberg.

Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft, the short story “Gramma” was written by King for his 1985 short story anthology Skeleton Crew.

Mercy follows two young boys on a visit to the hospital where they learn that their dying grandmother is a witch and that her powers are fueled by a pact with the Ancient Ones.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
