King Returns to 11/22/63

Stephen King has a new book coming out in November called "11/22/63," and like many of his other works, this one is going to be made into a movie. It will be directed by Jonathan Demme, the director of "Silence of the Lambs" and it's been promised that we can "rest assured that this will be a project that is made with iron-clad dedication to the source material and true cinematic integrity."  Check out the description of the novel on this promo page on King's website.

I'm a sucker for time travel, so even though JFK's death doesn't carry the weight for me that it does for my parents' generation (and King's), this still looks like a very interesting read. Plus, I love that we'll get to see the 1950's recreated on film again a la Back to the Future - even if we get there using less gigawatts.
