Adapting Stephen King’s Tweets into Major Motion Picture the Future of the Film Industry

HOLLYWOOD— After selling his most recent tweet to Sony Pictures for just short of seven million dollars, American fiction writer Stephen King’s tweets have become the latest bidding ground for Hollywood studios looking for new, fresh material. “We’re really excited to add ‘My puppy chewed up a Santa hat. Cool’ to our repertoire,” said Bruce Jennings, president of acquisitions for Sony. “It’s a story that you can visualize and I’m left wondering, “Will the hat be okay?” That’s what you call pizazz.” King has published fifty-five novels, fifty-five of which have been adapted into feature films, and his tweets are just now beginning to draw attention. According to film critic Leslie Wannabe, “There is a tantalizing zestiness in the way King formats 140 characters. You’re left wanting more, so adapting his work into feature films only makes sense.” At press time King’s latest tweet, ‘Genial, not genitals! Damn you auto-correct,’ is set to yield record numbers.
