FUN FACT; THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION.


tsr

Did you know…..

Celebrity author Stephen King sold the rights to his novella “Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption” for only one thousand dollars, out of his friendship with Frank Darabont ; famed for directing the 1994 classic film THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION starring Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman.

The writer and the director had become friends when Darabont adapted a short story of King’s called “The Woman in the Room” for The Woman in the Room (1983) (King has a policy stating that any aspiring filmmaker can adapt his short stories for a buck) and King was thoroughly impressed. They maintained a pen-pal relationship and didn’t actually meet until Darabont optioned “Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption”.

Well, if you didn’t know, now you know.
