More Stephen King is headed to Netflix, the streaming service has announced today, with two of the best King-based horror movies being added to Netflix in the coming weeks.

We’ve learned that Andy Muschietti’s IT (2017) will bring Pennywise to Netflix on June 19, 2022, followed by Frank Darabont’s The Mist arriving on Netflix on June 22, 2022.

Those two movies will join other Stephen King horror adaptations currently on Netflix including Pet Sematary (1989), Christine, Gerald’s Game, In the Tall Grass, and 1922.

On the horizon, a feature film adaptation of one of the stories featured in Stephen King‘s collection If It Bleeds, titled Mr. Harrigan’s Phone, is currently in the works at Netflix. That project is being developed by “American Horror Story” creator Ryan Murphy and Blumhouse, with John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side) writing and directing the adaptation.

Donald Sutherland and Jaeden Martell (IT) will star. Sutherland will star in the title role of “Mr. Harrigan,” we had learned late last year, with Martell in the role of “Craig.”

Expect Mr. Harrigan’s Phone sometime in 2022.

Mr. Harrigan’s Phone is from the latest collection of novellas “If It Bleeds” from Stephen King, about a young boy named Craig, living in a small town, who befriends an older, reclusive billionaire, Mr. Harrigan. The two form a bond over books and an iPhone, but when the man passes away, the boy discovers that not everything dead is gone, and finds himself able to communicate with his friend from the grave through the iPhone that was buried with him.”
