In the Tall Grass: Release Date and Trailer for Netflix Stephen King & Joe Hill Movie


A movie based on Stephen King and Joe Hill's novella, In the Tall Grass, is coming to Netflix in October.

In the Tall Grass, a novella written by Stephen King and son Joe Hill originally published in Esquire and then released as an e-book, is getting the movie treatment from Splice director Vincenzo Natali. Why? Because just about anything that Stephen King wrote has become the object of a frenzied rush to acquire adaptation rights. – There are worse things that the industry could be collectively pursuing.

While this King onscreen offering – one of myriad others across all networks and streamers – will, quite literally, have you watching grass grow – centered on a murderous Kansas lawn – Netflix was the lucky outlet that won dibs.

In the Tall Grass Details

In the Tall Grass is classic Stephen King horror fiction. The story begins with a brother and sister driving down the Kansas countryside when they suddenly hear a boy screaming for help in a field. Then, as you’d expect from this father-son duo, all hell breaks loose. As King’s son and co-author, Joe Hill, recently mused of the project on Twitter:

In the Tall Grass will be Netflix’s third Stephen King project. The streaming service previously released adaptations of Gerald’s Game and 1922. Both were warmly received by critics.

Here’s what Natali had to say about “In the Tall Grass” in an interview with Screen Daily:

“Who would think that grass could be frightening? Trust Stephen King and Joe Hill to find a way. They have transformed an otherwise innocuous Kansas field into a stage for some of the most disturbing horror fiction I have ever read.”

The film was produced by Splice‘s Steve Hoban, Jimmy Miller at Mosaic, and M. Riley. Miller and Riley previously produced The Lazarus Effect.
