Stephen King’s Ask for Longer Version of THE TOMMYKNOCKERS

Loading...

Recently Stephen King has stated that the extremely long three hour 1993 TV adaptation of his 1987 science-fiction novel The Tommyknockers should have been much longer.

King tells NYTimes: “I didn’t like it; I didn’t care for it at all. [Jimmy Smits] is a fine actor [but] he had to give a bunch of pretentious, portentous lines.[And it] should have been much longer. It felt kind of cheap and thrown together.I felt like they missed the sense of the book.”

What do you think? Are you down for a 4 to 5 hour long version of the film?
