We know it be can be difficult not only to keep up with whatever the prolific Stephen King publishes next, but also which of his works are headed for feature or television adaptations. At the moment, King-affiliated projects include: the forthcoming TV series "Under The Dome" and the remake of "Carrie" along with a number of movies and/or shows in active development or being filmed, such as "A Good Marriage," "The Ten O'Clock People," "Mercy" and "11/22/63." So perhaps it's not a surprise the King's latest effort "Joyland" -- on store shelves today -- already has a movie version in the works, with "The Help" director Tate Taylor set to write and direct and feature. Tate Taylor? Stephen King? It might seem like an odd choice, but the material isn't your standard fare from the horror maestro.
