Jordan Gets Heart Shaped BoxGoon
Today Warner Bros. Pictures has just attached Neil Jordan to direct and script Heart Shaped Box. Neil Jordan doesn't have much experience in the genre other than Interview with the Vampire but he is a rather talented filmmaker. So at least they didn't just tag another music video director on this one.
Heart Shaped Box is actually a novel that was written by Joe Hill. Joe Hill just so happens to be Stephen Kings son who was outed not to long ago by the trades. The book was published in February, centers on a rock star obsessed with the occult who buys a suit advertised at an online auction site as haunted by its dead owner's ghost. He ultimately is forced to confront the ghost and the demons of his own past.
