Adaptions of Stephen King’s “Rose Madder” and “Under the Dome” underway

It’s looking increasingly unlikely that Ron Howard’s “Dark Tower” gesamtkunstwerk will ever play anywhere outside the director’s head, but fortunately, Stephen King has somewhere around 1,347 other works (a rough estimate) just aching to be adapted into another medium. Next up on the list? The author’s 1995 novel “Rose Madder” and “Under the Dome” from 2009.

According to Variety, the film version of “Rose Madder” is set to go into production sometime in the next year and a half, and will be filmed from a script by Naomi Sheridan, best known for writing “In America” and being the daughter of that film’s director, Jim Sheridan. The novel, which King himself once described as “stiff” and “trying-too-hard” follows a woman who is the victim of domestic abuse and ends up escaping into a painting.

Meanwhile, moves are also being made to bring “Under the Dome” to the small screen. We’ve known since this summer that Showtime would be turning the book into a serialized drama, but the big question was who would end up writing the project.

We now have an answer as Slashfilm reports that comic book scribe, “Lost” writer and all-around geek all-star Brian K. Vaughan will be taking on the project. The original book was based on a small Maine town which has a humongous, inexplicable dome come down over it, separating it from the rest of the world. So, basically “The Simpsons Movie,” but sans Spider-Pig.

What do you think of the two newest Stephen King adaptations? Which one are you more excited for? Tell us in the comments below or on Facebook and Twitter.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
