Stephen King does business with the director of “The Help”

Deadline is reporting that Stephen King has optioned “Joyland”, his latest, to “The Help” director Tate Taylor.

Like “The Help,” “Joyland” is a period piece, as are a number of King books. It will be published next month.

The plot — from deadline – “Set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of a college student who moonlights as a carnival worker. There, he confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will forever change his life.”
