The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon Movie in the Works

-

A movie based on Stephen King novel The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon (buy here) is in the works, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Released in April of 1999, the psychological horror novel is officially described as follows:

Nine-year-old Trisha McFarland strays from the path while she and her recently divorced mother and brother take a hike along a branch of the Appalachian Trail. Lost for days, wandering farther and farther astray, Trisha has only her portable radio for comfort. A huge fan of Tom Gordon, a Boston Red Sox relief pitcher, she listens to baseball games and fantasizes that her hero will save her. Nature isn’t her only adversary, though – something dangerous may be tracking Trisha through the dark woods.

The late George A. Romero was previously attached to write and direct a film adaptation in the early 2000s. His former wife, Chris Romero, is now teaming up with It producer Roy Lee and Jon Berg of Vertigo Films, as well as Ryan Silbert of Origin Story to produce the feature adaptation. Andrew Childs will executive produce.

The trade says that a search for a screenwriter is currently underway for The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon.

“I’m thrilled that my book is being brought to the screen, and that George’s company is involved. Chris (Romero) has worked long and hard to make this project happen,” said Stephen King in a statement.
