DOLLAR BABY HISTORY
In the late 1970s, Stephen King started receiving requests from student and emerging filmmakers to adapt his work. As his way of giving back to the up and coming filmmaking generations, he began the "Dollar Baby".
Dollar Babies are an ever-changing collection of his older or lesser known short stories that have never been optioned for film or television that up and coming filmmakers can pitch to option for $1.
The first Dollar Baby was "The Boogeyman" directed by Jeff Schiro but the most famous Dollar Baby was Frank Darabont's adaptation of "The Woman in the Room". He went on to direct THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, THE GREEN MILE, and THE MIST.
"Beachworld" was first published in Weird Tales in 1984, followed by King's best-selling anthology Skeleton Crew in 1985. Beachworld was chosen our Dollar Baby because of the survival against all odds theme, and access to beautiful Glamis Sand Dune shooting location.
