Deadline is reporting that Stephen King has given Tate Taylor, who wrote the screenplay for The Help and then directed it, the option to adapt his upcoming novel Joyland.  With the novel not due to be released until June, this is unusual.

Set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever.
