Scott Derrickson, helmer of the hit new film “Sinister” (which did staggeringly well over the weekend in the United States), has been tapped to helm an adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Breathing Method”.

Jason Blum’s Blumhouse will produce the pic, which Scott Teems has been commissioned to write.

Deadline
, who have the news, remind us that “Breathing Method” was as part of the 1982 King collection ”Different Seasons” and is the only story in the volume that hasn’t been adapted. “It focuses on an elderly physician named Dr. Emlyn McCarron, who recounts an incident in his career of a patient who was determined to give birth to her illegitimate child, despite her financial difficulties and the social stigma in the 1930s. The patient turns to the doctor because of the book he has written about the Breathing Method, a system to help women through childbirth. She grows close with the doctor, who finds that she is so determined to have the child through the method that she lingers on even after a horrific accident on the way to the hospital.”

The film hasn’t yet been financed, but after the success of “Sinister” – which has made three times it’s budget back – it’ll no doubt be cashed up before Christmas.
