    Isn't this already being made into a movie from the director of Silence of the Lambs? I know that was being set up around the time of the novels release.

    It really would make a better show though.

    I enjoyed the book, but I think it would be better as a miniseries than a show.

    If its good Ill check it out on dvd, but like you Im not throwing money at hulu. There is a special hell for Hulu and their perfect quality ads and crappy quality streaming.

    I won't pay for this either. :( I have too many other pay channels as it is. Just disappointed FX or AMC didn't grab it. They have the best programming after HBO.

    Sarah Gadon To Star In 11/22/63

    Posted: April 7, 2015, 11:55:45
    Section: Film » 11/22/63

    reports that Sarah Gadon will play Sadie in 11/22/63.

    Sarah Gadon will star in 11/22/63, based on the 2011 bestseller from Stephen King about Jake Epping (Franco), an unassuming divorced English teacher who stumbles upon a time portal that leads to 9/9/1958 and goes on a quest to try and prevent the assassination of John F. Kennedy. But his mission is threatened by Lee Harvey Oswald, his falling in love and a past that doesn’t want to be changed. Gadon plays the statuesque, smart and outspoken Sadie, a librarian at the Texas school Jake works at.

    Kevin Macdonald (The Last King Of Scotland) is directing the first two hours of the miniseres, with JJ Abrams and Bad Robot producing. Bridget Carpenter (The Red Road) has adapted the novel.
