Stephen King's 11/22/63 Optioned by Jonathan Demme - Plus Book Trailer

Although Stephen King's next novel, 11/22/63, won't be published until November, Silence of the Lambs director Jonathan Demme has optioned the rights to it as a film project that he will write and direct.
States The Hollywood Reporter, "The tome, all 1000-pages of it, is set to hit stores in November and centers on an English teacher who goes through a time portal in an effort to stop the Kennedy assassination. He finds himself dealing with luminaries ranging from Elvis to JFK and meets a high school librarian that becomes the love of his life."

King is expected to serve as executive producer if the film goes forward.

This news follows reports that the Harry Potter director and writer team of David Yates and Steve Kloves may be bringing the author's The Stand to the big screen.
