Description

Book:
The Dead Zone
By Stephen King

Film:
The Dead Zone (1983)

Released in 1979, this was Stephen King’s first smash hit which was also the first of his books to kit the top ten best sellers. This was also the first novel to feature the fictional town in Maine called Castle Rock. This science fiction thriller would spawn a critically acclaim film directed by David Cronenberg and a six season television series which aired on the USA Network.

The Dead Zone (1983)

The film was directed by David Cronenberg with screenplay written by Jeffrey Boam. The film started shooting in January 1983 in the the Niagra Falls region. The cold and brutal winds were sometimes unbearable for cast and crew. Interestingly enough, Bill Murray was first choice but producers felt that he was not dramatic enough and Christopher Walken was cast instead. The film is considered one of the best Stephen King adaptions.
