Stephen King's 'The Mist' Set to Engulf TV

Stephen King's "Carrie," "The Shining," "Salem's Lot" and "Children of the Corn" have been adapted twice, with new versions of "The Stand" and "It" in the works," so why not "The Mist"?

Deadline reports The Weinstein Company's Dimension Television is developing a TV series based on the 1980 horror novella, with the author's blessing. It was previously adapted for film in 2007 by Frank Darabont, who previously wrote and directed "The Shawshank Redemption" and "The Green Mile," based on King's works.

"The Mist" is set in a small town in Maine that's suddenly enveloped in an unnatural fog that conceals otherworldly monsters.

Christian Torpe, who created the Danish comedy-drama "Rita," will write the new adaptation.
