From Stephen King to Stephen King by Daniel Dilworth

Stephen King is an American writer known primarily for his horror stories, which include The Shining. The Shining was made into a film, directed by Stanley Kubrick, and starred Jack Nicholson. Jack Nicholson also appeared in the 2006 film The Departed. Leonardo DiCaprio starred in The Departed as well. He also appeared in Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi hit Inception alongside an array of actors, including the young up-and-coming Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Gordon-Levitt appeared in The Dark Knight Rises as a young cop, who is revealed in the end to be Robin. This character appears previously in the Batman movies of the 1990s, such as Batman Forever. Batman Forever features Val Kilmer as the Caped Crusader himself but, in 1984, he featured in the 1984 film Top Secret. Top Secret was made by David Zucker, Jim Abrahams and Jerry Zucker. Zucker, Abrahams and Zucker made the famously hilarious Airplane and The Naked Gun, which both featured the late, great Leslie Nielsen. Nielsen’s character in The Naked Gun, Frank Drebin, was parodied in the opening to an episode of Family Guy. Another episode of Family Guy features a spoof of The Shawshank Redemption, an adaptation of a novella called Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption which was written by Stephen King.
