Tom Hiddleston has said that his upcoming Stephen King adaptation The Life of Chuck reminds him of The Shawshank Redemption.The new film is an adaptation of a short story from King’s novella If It Bleeds, a collection of four tales first released in 2020.
It will depict three stories from the life of Charles “Chuck” Krantz.Appearing on Josh Horowitz’s Happy Sad Confused podcast, the actor, who will play the title character, said that of all King’s well-known works, it is a previous film adaptation that he feels his new project most closely resembles.“What I love about this material and the short stories out there, was it seemed to be resonant of the Stephen King who wrote The Shawshank Redemption,” he said.“There’s a warmth and a kind of spirit that’s really on the side of life in the story, that I really connected to when I read it.
