Vulture.com has a review and some commentary by King and Hill on both A Good Marriage and Horns:
We reached out to Hill and King to find out what the father and son had to say about the other's movie.
Hill: "A Good Marriage explores a grim subject — what if the person sleeping next to you every night was a monster? — with a moral intelligence and a calm, clear-eyed authority that is rare in any form of storytelling, but especially in the movies, and especially these days. I'm a words guy, and I thought this film was full of great ones. Also I'm sick of CGI skyscrapers collapsing in a big crash of digital dust and Dolby noise. I'm bored of CGI robots beating dents into each other. All the software in the world can't give you a great story or a wrenching performance like you get in MARRIAGE from Joan Allen. To me, those unique human contributions are the first and best effect of them all ... and the one reason to still love the movies."
King: "I liked Horns for the crisp, bright cinematography, but what I loved about it is the fearless way it mixes humor and horror, creating an all new taste treat. Daniel Radcliffe's performance encompasses both the laughs and screams effortlessly. I go to the movies to be entertained. Horns was big entertainment."
King interviewed on MTV, talks about the Dark Tower Movies:
“I love it because it’s so innovative — the idea of using the front story as theatrical tent pole movies, and using the back story of when the characters are a little bit younger as a TV thing,” King said. “To be able to shoot both at the same time, and use these big sets for TV — it’s a very innovative idea.”
In this case, however, innovative is synonymous with tricky. Howard’s ambitious “Dark Tower” plans date back more than four full years, with major studios like Universal and Warner Bros. passing on the pitch to tell Roland’s story across the big and small-screens — even with Oscar-winning actor Javier Bardem attached at one point.
“He was perfect,” King said of Bardem. “We were this close to green light. You know how it is in Hollywood. Things puff up like mushrooms after a rainfall — then, all at once, they’re gone.”
But make no mistake: “Dark Tower” isn’t gone. King isn’t surprised that the project has been “slow-walked,” and that many fans are skeptical it’ll even see the light of day — but he’s patient, and he’s confident, that it’ll see the light of day.
“It took me 35, 36 years to write ‘The Dark Tower.’ I can wait [for the movie],” King said. “We’ve been close a couple of times. I’m content to see what happens. Sooner or later, it’ll show up.”
The full cast for the southern gothic, supernatural musical Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, was announced today, with actor/writer/producer Billy Burke (The Twilight Saga) and actress/writer/singer Gina Gershon (Killer Joe, House of Versace, Boeing, Boeing) playing the lead roles of Joe McCandless and Monique McCandless respectively. Touring across North America this Fall, Ghost Brothers of Darkland County was written by best-selling author Stephen King, with music by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer John Mellencamp, and musical direction by Grammy Award-winning T Bone Burnett. The tour kicks off right outside Bangor, ME at the Collins Center For The Arts in Orono, ME, on November 8, before travelling through cities such as Toronto, Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles. Due to overwhelming demand a second show has been added in San Francisco on December 6th which is now the final date of the tour.
