Last month, it was revealed that Stephen King had a different ending in mind for 11/22/63 and made changes after talking with his son, Joe Hill. The alternate ending has now been released. To give you a little back story, here is what was previously posted by the moderator of the official Stephen King website’s message boards:
**Spoiler Warning** “I’ve read both of them and have been meaning to ask him if he would consider putting the first version on the site so people could compare. He told me he’d changed it because Joe had seen some problems with the way the first one was written but I don’t know with 100% certainty whether Joe gave him specific ideas for the rewrite…
…I was able to ask Steve about this, so here’s his answer. Joe only told him that Jake had to meet Sadie again when she was an old lady but how that happened was completely Steve’s idea so what we’ve read in the book was all Steve’s writing based on Joe’s suggestion to have Jake see Sadie one more time . He also told me it would be okay to put up the original version of the ending but I need to wait at least a month before doing so to give more people the chance to read it as published.”

In other 11/22/63 news, MTV News recently caught up with director Jonathan Demme who provided a status update on his adaption of Stephen King's novel:
"I'm adapting Stephen King's book... I'm on the screenplay for it right now."
"It's a time travel story...Somebody from the 20th century gets a window back to the past and they go back with the goal of trying to prevent the assassination of JFK. It's an extraordinary thriller. It's a great love story, also. It's a fabulous book."
"First I have to get the script finished... and it's going really well"
