Frank Darabont on adapting Stephen King


As I sit across a small table from Frank Darabont in an upscale hotel suite, it becomes apparent that the talented writer and director of The Mist not only excels at translating Stephen King’s other literary works into Oscar nominated films (Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile). Additionally, he brings bits of King’s supernatural tendencies to his own life, evident by his knocking on the table when mentioning that he’s on the verge of wrapping up a deal to adapt Ray Bradbury’s classic science fiction masterpiece Fahrenheit 451 to the big screen. Adapting has become an increasingly lucrative profession for Darabont.
