He's currently horrifying movie-goers with 'Sinister' but director Scott Derrickson is ready to introduce the cinematic world to the 'Method' of childbirth.
According to Deadline, Derrickson and producer Jason Blum, of Paranormal Activity and Sinister fame, have secured the option to bring Stephen King's novella, 'The Breaking Method' to the big screen.
'Breaking Method' is part of the short novella collection 'Different Seasons', which comprises four different stories: 'Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption', 'Apt Pupil', 'The Body' and 'The Breaking Method'. The first three stories have already been adapted into critically acclaimed films: 'The Shawshank Redemption', 'Apt Pupil' and 'Stand By Me', respectively. Now 'The Breaking Method' is finally on its way courtesy of the 'Sinister' duo.
While Derrickson and Blum have found their wheelhouse with the horror genre, 'The Breaking Method' is actually not that horrific... unless you considering childbirth horrifying. The story focuses on a physician who recounts an incident where he worked with a patient who was determined to give birth to her illegitimate child. The Breathing Method is a system the doctor wrote a book about, which helps women through childbirth. There's really not much else to it and besides one horrific scene at the end of the book, it's more a social commentary than a horror film.
It will be a while before we learn any more about this adaptation but it will be interesting to see what direction this movie will end up taking with Derrickson and Blum at the helm.
