Here's a King book that stands a better chance than many of his other books of becoming a good movie. The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon is - for King - a relatively short book with a small cast and very little rubber monster suit moments. Dakota Fanning - of the recent Man On Fire movie has been tapped to play the lead. This is where the crux of the movie's success lies as she is practically in every scene. Also she is by herself for a great deal of the time - I'm guessing 80% of the time. George Romero is attached to the project as well. As is Laura Dern. This movie could join other King horror movies such as The Dead Zone, Cujo, and Misery - which it shares the most in tone with - as a good adaptation. Little would have to be cut plotwise. I am hopeful and look forward to seeing this one arrive in the theaters.
