About

My name is Christopher Birk. I am adapting the short story 'WILLA' by Stephen King into a feature film!

The Story: David goes to find his fiancee, Willa. She has left him at a train station with a group of stranded passengers. He finds her at a local honky-tonk of a club and in his attempt to bring her back he learns the horrifying truth about why they cannot stay at the station.

Several critics, in reviewing Just After Sunset, also included their opinions of "Willa". In The Washington Times, the reviewer says, ""Willa" is more than just a flirty romance. It's a ghost story, albeit one with a kicker that causes goosebumps of a different order." Carole Goldberg, in the Sun Sentinel, calls the story a "wistful love song in a haunting minor key." A review for NPR says that in "Willa", as well as in another story in the collection, "The Things They Left Behind", King uses "the supernatural as a way to movingly depict life's frailty."

The Film: I am making this wonderful story into a feature film. We have just completed casting. Locations are being scouted and crew is being hired. Follow our updates on
