‘Fault in Our Stars’ Director to Helm Stephen King’s ‘Revival’

Josh Boone is attached to direct an adaptation of Stephen King’s “Revival,” sources confirmed to Variety.

Boone has already penned the script with Michael De Luca attached to produce. The film is currently not set up at a studio, but sources indicate that Universal will get a first look, since De Luca does have a production deal with the studio.

Published in 2014, the book follows a preacher who loses his faith when his wife and child are killed in an accident. He soon becomes obsessed in his experimentation into the healing power of electrical current, positioning him to act as God-like faith healer.

Intertwined with the preacher is a young man with demons of his own, who has benefited from the preacher’s talents and becomes a reluctant accomplice to his deadly obsession.

King previously tapped Boone to adapt his best-seller “The Stand” into a feature film. Boone is still attached to direct the pic, which is currently set up at CBS Films.

The writer-director is also attached to direct “The Vampire Chronicles” for Universal. He is repped by CAA.

The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
