“The Fall of the House of Usher” and “Midnight Mass” creator Mike Flanagan has revealed that his upcoming film adaptation of the Stephen King short story “The Life of Chuck” has wrapped production.

Tom Hiddleston, Mark Hamill, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Karen Gillan, Jacob Tremblay, Matthew Lillard, Harvey Guillén, Rahul Kohli, and Heather Lagenkamp star in the film which center around the supposedly ordinary man named Charles Krantz (Hiddleston).

The story unfolds in reverse, beginning with his death from a brain tumor at 39, and ending with his childhood in a supposedly haunted house. The work was published in 2020 anthology collection “If It Bleeds”.

The project marks Flanagan’s third King film adaptation after 2017’s “Gerald’s Game” and 2019’s “Doctor Sleep”. The project had SAG-AFTRA interim agreement allowing it to film on the Alabama Gulf Coast. In a posting on Twitter, Flanagan says:

“This has been a tenacious little miracle of a movie from the start & I’m forever indebted to this wonderful cast and crew. This film is deeply special to me, and I’m elated that it’s going to exist in the world.

It’s been a long time since I made something truly independent & it fed my soul to be back in the indie world where I started – especially here in Alabama, where we shot OCULUS, BEFORE I WAKE, HUSH and GERALD’S GAME.

Our cast was an embarrassment of riches, our crew was small but fierce & the film itself is like nothing I’ve ever gotten to make, or will likely ever get to make again. I am in love with every frame & so grateful to every person who brought this slice of hope and joy to life.

Now I’m back to LA to edit (cannot wait), and start the long road of expectation setting that THE LIFE OF CHUCK isn’t a horror movie.”

Flanagan also thanked King, producer Trevor Macy, and production companies Intrepid Pictures and QWGmire.
