Rest Stop von Alex Ross Perry

Legendary Pictures has tapped Alex Ross Perry to write and direct a new
film adaptation of the Stephen King short story “Rest Stop,” Variety is
reporting. The short story follows an author who flees the scene after
overhearing and breaking up a domestic spat at a rest stop. Initially
published in a 2003 issue of Esquire, “Rest Stop” won the National
Magazine Award for Fiction in 2004. It also appears in King’s 2008 story
collection “Just After Sunset.”

According to Variety, the film will be a cat-and-mouse thriller
following the twisted journey of two women after an encounter at a rest
stop. If that is the case, Perry’s script will evidently diverge from
the source material in some ways, including swapping the genders of the
main character and focusing on two characters instead of one.

Perry is coming off of a critical highlight of his career with “Her
Smell,” a dizzying punk rock epic starring Elisabeth Moss as an aging
rocker and her deteriorating mental state. The film was hailed by many
critics as Perry’s best film to date. The writer/director’s other titles
include “The Color Wheel,” “Listen Up Philip,” and “Queen of Earth,”
among others. He also co-wrote Disney’s “Christopher Robin.”

In a lengthy interview with IndieWire critic David Ehrlich, Perry
lamented the state of independent film and questioned the future of his

“I guess I could be surprised by what happens next, but people will only
support things that seem like they’re going to pay out, and at this
point I’ve failed at that enough that I don’t know why I would ask
someone to take that chance. Where does that leave me? It leaves me
nowhere. Take your ball and go home,” he said.

While nothing in Hollywood is a sure thing, a Stephen King movie is a pretty safe bet.

King’s writing has never fallen out of favor in Hollywood for as long as
he has been active, but he has had a particularly fruitful last few
years in Hollywood. The King project “Pet Sematary,” starring Jason
Clarke, Amy Seimetz and John Lithgow, has earned $43 million since it
opened earlier this month. King’s “It: Chapter Two” is set for release
this fall, and Ewan McGregor is set to star in “Doctor Sleep” — an
adaptation of King’s sequel to “The Shining” — from Warner Bros.

Craig Flores (“300”) will produce under his Bread & Circuses banner,
with Alex Garcia and Ali Mendes set to oversee the project for
Legendary. ... 202060413/
