Mike Flanagan Says His Adaptation of Stephen King’s ‘Revival’ Will Be “Bleak and Mean”

Announced back in May, Mike Flanagan is on board to write, produce and potentially direct an adaptation of Stephen King‘s Revival for Warner Bros., and he promises the film won’t have the sentimentality of his previous King adaptations Gerald’s Game and Doctor Sleep. Speaking with The Kingcast this week, Flanagan teased a downright “bleak and mean” movie.

What I love about it is it’s a return to cosmic horror, which I think is so fun,” Flanagan told the podcast. “It is relentlessly dark and cynical and I’m enjoying the hell out of that. This is just bleak and mean and I like it for that. I haven’t gotten to end a movie that way since Absentia, maybe? Maybe Ouija?

This one was a really fun piece of material for me because I get to be like, ‘Oh, you want a dark ending? Okay. Cool. Get ready.’

I will be very curious to see if they let me make it,” Flanagan added with a laugh. He also noted that the first draft of the script is complete, and that Stephen King “loves it.”

Be sure to listen to the full episode for more King talk with Flanagan.

“The novel focused on the relationship between a heroin-addicted musician and a dubious faith healer with a hidden agenda. The minister is obsessed with trying to find a way to communicate with his departed wife and child but ends up connecting to a Lovecraftian horror.”

Revival was published by Scribner in November 2014.

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
