Stephen King’s ‘The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon’ Is Being Made Into A Movie

LOS ANGELES (CBS) – Another Stephen King novel is getting the movie treatment. According to The Hollywood Reporter, there’s a deal in place to bring “The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon” to the screen.


“It” producer Roy Lee is attached to the project, the website says. Now there’s a search for a writer to come up with a script.

The 1999 horror novel is about a girl who gets lost in the woods of northern New England and imagines that Boston Red Sox relief pitcher Tom Gordon is with her.

The Maine author said in a statement that he’s “thrilled that my book is being brought to the screen.”

The news comes just ahead of the opening of “It Chapter Two,” the sequel to the highest-grossing horror flick of all time.

I never read it.

I did see yesterday that the Director if IT will be allowed to make a ‘Supercut’ of the two movies into one probably for Blu-ray release. Combining them like that will enable to movie to tell the story similar to how the book did (without the underage orgy).
