Mike Flanagan is fast becoming the new king of King. With Gerald's Game and Doctor Sleep already under his belt, is now on board to adapt Stephen King's Revival.

The 2014 book focused on the relationship between a heroin-addicted musician and a dubious faith healer with a hidden agenda. The minister is obsessed with trying to find a way to communicate with his departed wife and child but ends up connecting to a Lovecraftian horror. You know, that old story.

While Flanagan – who will write the script and has an option to direct – and producing partner Trevor Macy have had mixed fortunes with the horror master's work (Game was praised, while Sleep faltered at the box office), they've become go-to guys for the genre beyond King's work, with the likes of Oculus and the successful small screen version of The Haunting Of Hill House.
