Jonathan Demme is set to write, direct and produce the upcoming Stephen King’s sci-fi adaptation ‘11/22/63’.

’The Silence of the Lambs’ helmer, Jonathan Demme has acquired the rights of Stephen King’s ‘11/22/63’, to adapt it on the big screen. Also, he will serve as producer, writer and director of the movie.

The movie is based on the sci-fi novel of Stephen King. It seems that, Stephen still has got some hot materials, which are alluring the film makers, despite ‘The Dark Tower’ has fallen apart, after Warner Bros withdraw its attempt to make it in to multiple movies and TV series.

The story of the upcoming adaptation ‘11/22/63’ is about a 35-year-old high school English teacher, Jake Epping. He travels back in time to try and save the assassination of then American President John F Kennedy in Dallas on November 22, 1963 (11/22/63).

Recently, Warner Bros studio has also planned to adapt another adaptation of Stephen King ‘The Stand’. The studio has locked David Yates and Steve Kloves, to helm and scribe the project. The duo has worked together for the last four films of ‘Harry Potter’ franchise.

IIona Herzberg of ‘Rachel Getting Married’ will be the producer of the sci-fi movie, while Stephen King will serve as the executive producer. Jonathan Demme will provide the script, direct the movie along with being the producer of the project.

Jonathan has the movies like ‘The Manchurian Candidate’, ‘Beloved’ and ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ to his credit. ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ has won several Oscars including Best picture and Director Award for Jonathan Demme.
