Director Mark Pavia Working on a Stephen King Anthology

Director Mark Pavia, whose first feature was Stephen King's The Night Flier, is returning to the King's realm with an anthology feature. Pavia is working with King on bringing several of his short stories to life. He promises to be adapting "only horror stories and one that is incredibly dark and endlessly atmospheric.  I want to make a film that represents exactly what you think of when you hear the name 'Stephen King' — a celebration of the man and what he does best, which is scaring the living hell out of all of us!" While Pavia won't divulge which stories he is adapting just yet, he does give some hints. Hit the jump for more.

According to Pavia, "Steve chose two of the stories and I chose two — the selection a perfect mixture of classic and contemporary King, a little bit of something for his oldest and newest fans alike.  It will be a true representation of his different personas, his varied styles and voices throughout the years.  Everything from the horror showman at his pulpiest to his most introverted and introspective character pieces, which can also be his most frightening.  Every single aspect of his personality will be represented, which as a filmmaker makes me extremely excited.  Not only will the film showcase Stephen King's many different sides, it will also showcase mine as well."
