Filmmaker Josh Boone has revealed in a new interview with Creative Screenwriting that Russell Crowe is attached to star in Boone’s upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s 2014 novel Revival. Boone has written the script for the film and plans to make it his next directorial effort after the X-Men spinoff The New Mutants.

I’m guessing that Crowe will play Charles Jacobs, the charismatic minister whose experiments with electricity lead him down some obsessive and nightmarish paths following the death of his wife and baby in a horrible road accident. The tormented Jacobs is a great role for Crowe, and it will be interesting to see who is cast as Jamie, the local boy who first meets the preacher as a child and runs into him again years later when both are older and much more troubled.
