Mark Pavia directed Stephen King's The Night Flier in 1997 and we haven't really heard much from him since. Fortunately, he's back with news that will excite fans of Stephen King and anthology horror. Pavia spoke with Icons of Fright and announced that currently working with Stephen King on a new anthology horror film:

“It’s a Stephen King anthology film (as yet untitled)... One that consists of only horror stories and one that is incredibly dark and endlessly atmospheric. I want to make a film that represents exactly what you think of when you hear the name 'Stephen King' — a celebration of the man and what he does best, which is scaring the living hell out of all of us! But also stories that are rich in character and that have an emotional weight to them, which, of course, is what he’s all about. That’s what sets him apart from everyone else. It will be the first Stephen King anthology film in 25 years.”

While the project sounds like it is in the early stages of development, Pavia mentions that the 4 stories have already been selected: “Steve chose two of the stories and I chose two — the selection a perfect mixture of classic and contemporary King, a little bit of something for his oldest and newest fans alike. It will be a true representation of his different personas, his varied styles and voices throughout the years. Everything from the horror showman at his pulpiest to his most introverted and introspective character pieces, which can also be his most frightening. Every single aspect of his personality will be represented, which as a filmmaker makes me extremely excited. Not only will the film showcase Stephen King’s many different sides, it will also showcase mine as well.”

There's no additional information on the project at this time, but with Stephen King's name attached, we're assuming that this film will have no problem moving forward in some capacity. We'll provide more details on the project as it becomes available.
