Looks like a few more actors have wandered into The Mist of Frank Darabont and Stephen King. According to Variety, Marcia Gay Harden and Toby Jones have joined a cast list that already includes the likes of Thomas Jane, Laurie Holden, Andre Braugher, Alexa Davalos, Bill Sadler, Jeffrey DeMunn and Amin Joseph. The flick is based on a rather strong Stephen King story about a group of folks who hole up in a supermarket when a sudden weather pattern arrives bearing undead beasties. Cool.

Everything else is pretty much old news: Frank Darabont will be adapting his third King story (after The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile); production's already underway; Dimension aims to get the creeper into theaters by the end of the year. Looks like King fans are about to enjoy a new cinematic resurgence; Dimension also has 1408 this summer and Cell some time next year. Plus I heard that George Romero was doing a movie of From a Buick 8, and that might be interesting ...
