If you've been pining for some new big-screen Stephen King, you're in luck—four of the famed horror author's shorter works are being adapted as part of a new film anthology. So what made the cut?

Dubbed The Reaper's Image, the project will include the title short story (1969), "Mile 81" (2011), "N" (2008) and "The Monkey" (1980).

Whether you're a King classicist or a fan of his more recent works, there should be something for everyone.

Filmmaker Mark Pavia, who also adapted King's story "The Night Flier" in a low-budget 1997 effort, is behind the anthology.

In case you're wondering, "The Reaper's Image" is about an antique mirror haunted by the grim reaper; "Mile 81" is about a haunted car; "N" follows a psychiatrist's pursuit of a dangerous obsession; and "The Monkey" is built around a possessed novelty monkey toy.

King's stories are no strangers to the big and small screen (with extremely varied results), so it should be interesting to see how an anthology plays out.
