NEW YORK, March 20 — James Franco is loaning his voice to the audio edition of the Stephen King book The Dead Zone.
Set in the fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine, the story follows Johnny Smith who awakens from a five-year coma to discover that he can see people's futures and pasts upon contact.
When he encounters a ruthless man who promises a terrifying fate for all humanity, Johnny must find a way to stop him.
The book was also adapted for the silver screen in 1983 with Christopher Walken and Martin Sheen.
"I've been a fan of Stephen King's work for a while now. He's one of the most pleasurable authors to read or listen to. He just guides you along so well. Even though we're from different generations all his influences and things he references and subjects he's interested in seem to be all the things I'm interested in."
The audiobook by Simon & Schuster Audio will be available April 25, 2017. — AFP-Relaxnews
