The Life of Chuck: Tom Hiddleston and Mark Hamill Join Mike Flanagan’s Stephen King Adaptation
Mike Flanagan is currently working on a Stephen King adaptation titled The Life of Chuck. The film has Flanagan writing and producing as well and is based on a short story by King titled If It Bleeds. The project gets EVEN more exciting with the duo that will star in the film as Tom Hiddleston and Mark Hamill come together to team up with Flanagan on the film. Hiddleston will play the lead role of Chuck with Hamill cast as the character named Ablie.
The Life of Chuck will be a three-part story that is told in reverse beginning with Chuck’s death as a result of a brain tumor at the age of 39 and then turning the clock back ending with his childhood taking place in an apparently haunted home. The film is set to deliver a mind-boggling story that will not follow your typical linear narrative and with King as the inspiration for the adaptation, a few twists and turns are certain as the 2020 short anthology story becomes a feature by another icon of horror with Flanagan at the helm.
Flanagan is no stranger to King’s work having previously worked on Doctor Sleep and Gerald’s Game. Both were phenomenal entries that remained faithful to King’s original work.
Hiddleston is a household name to many fans in the geek community thanks to his portrayal of Loki throughout the MCU which continues in Loki season 2 on Disney+ with Hamill being nothing short of a film icon who famously played Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars franchise as well as famously lending his voice to The Joker on multiple occasions and projects.
Stay tuned as more information is unraveled for the upcoming King adaptation ‘The Life of Chuck‘.
