Stephen King On Screen, a documentary examining the film and television adaptations of Stephen King, arrives in the UK this June: here’s the trailer.

Stephen King has had so many adaptations of his work, he could easily be classed as his own subgenre. An eclectic range of films, from The Shining to Pet SemataryThe Shawshank Redemption to Gerald’s Game, his work spans the length and breadth of literary subject matter.

His film work is now set to be examined in a new documentary feature, King On Screen, and the synopsis reads as follows:

1976, Brian de Palma directs Carrie, the first novel by Stephen King. Since then, more than 50 directors have adapted the master of horror’s books, in more than 80 films & series, making him the most adapted author alive in the world. What is so fascinating about his work that filmmakers cannot stop adapting his works? King on Screen reunites the filmmakers that have adapted Stephen King’s books for both cinema & TV, including Frank Darabont (Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, The Walking Dead), Mick Garris (The Stand, Sleepwalkers), Tom Holland (The Langoliers, Chucky) & Taylor Hackford (Dolores Claiborne, Ray). It is a movie made for the fans and with the fans, led by an international ambition.

The film is directed by actress and filmmaker Daphné Baiwir.

King On Screen will be released on digital platforms in the UK on the 26th June.
