How The Green Mile comes alive!!
31 May 2019 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

The Walking in the Mile is too short around 25 minutes running, where Frank Darabont explains how this new project was offered to him through a phone call from Stephen King suggesting to him another "Prison Tale" if he maybe was interested to make something as "the Shawshank Redemption" the answer was a "big no" the wise King exposes in few words that it will have another concept, quite opposite on previous one, Darabont stayed interested at time, but imposes a condition, he will be the very first one to receive the first tale, he did and stayed thrilled and asking more, now Stephen King replied "you has to wait as anybody else", after receiving from Darabont the green light that he will make the picture, he adapted the five tales on screenplay in exactly eight weeks, they got Tom Hanks and start to find out a perfect John Coffey, which was told in another short documentary available on bonus DVD-Bluray.
