An extraordinary tale set on Death Row in a Southern prison in 1935, The Green Mile is the remarkable story of the cell block’s head guard, who develops a poignant, unusual relationship with one inmate who possesses a magical gift that is both mysterious and miraculous. The prison scenes were shot on location in Nashville, Tennessee at an abandoned state prison.

Award-winning filmmaker Frank Darabont returns to the director’s chair for the first time in five years to bring his second King adaptation to the motion picture screen. Darabont wrote and directed Castle Rock's acclaimed 1994 prison drama The Shawshank Redemption which garnered seven Academy Award® nominations, including one for Best Picture.

Two-time Academy Award®-winner Tom Hanks (Forrest Gump, Philadelphia, Saving Private Ryan) stars as Paul Edgecomb, the prison guard who relates, in flashback, a mystical account about his tour-of-duty at Cold Mountain Penitentiary and his watch over a quartet of convicted killers awaiting execution in the electric chair.

Repackaged to tie in with Castlerock's major motion picture release of the season, starring Tom Hanks. At Cold Mountain Penitentiary, prison guard Paul Edgecombe has seen the good, the evil, the innocent, and the guilty. But he's never seen anything like new prisoner John Coffey.

In a chilling novel by the author of Carrie and The Stand, a new prisoner at Cold Mountain Penitentiary presents an unusual dilemma for jaded prison guard Paul Edgecombe. Reprint.

Author Bio
Stephen King
Born in 1947, Stephen King has become a household name all over the world. His mother raised him and his brother after their father deserted the family in 1950. In high school, King began to write short stories, his first published work appearing in 1968. He attended the University of Maine, graduating with a B.S. in 1970. Up until his first novel appeared, King had worked in an industrial laundry, as a janitor, as well as an English teacher. CARRIE, his debut, was met by a largely indifferent public in 1974. It wasn't until two years later, after King's second novel 'SALEM'S LOT and the filmed version of CARRIE, that King became a major player in the horror field. THE SHINING, his 1977 haunted hotel novel, began a litany of bestsellers, including THE STAND, THE DEAD ZONE, PET SEMETARY, DOLORES CLAIBORNE, and many others. King's work is regarded as instrumental in bringing about a resurgence of interest in horror fiction in the 1970s and '80s. An extremely high percentage of King's voluminous literary output has been filmed, with varying degrees of success, but all serving to carry the name of Stephen King far and wide. He has written nonfiction, given lectures, acted in films, and continues to produce huge novels nearly every year, all of which become instant bestsellers. As an bizarre sidenote, during the summer of 1999 while walking along a back road in Maine, King was struck and seriously injured by a minivan whose driver apparently lost control of the vehicle while being distracted by his dog--thus creating exactly the kind of news item that might have inspired several of King's own novels.
