Stephen King did not Direct Maximum Overdrive[edit]

You list Stephen King as director, it was Stephen Spielberg. Kingauthored a story which the movie was based on. (talk) 01:09, 14 September 2008 (UTC)Michelle

'Stephen King's masterpiece of terror directed by the master himself.' - The tagline from the official movie poster. I haven't seen the movie myself, but that and all other sources credit King as the director.--Nytemaer (talk) 21:27, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Source needed for death report[edit]

I'm noticing the major US media like CNN are NOT reporting this, and the report is only citing an Italian news agency and says they have yet to confirm the report. The odds of this being bogus are admittedly slim, but the fact CNN and Zap2It (part of the Los Angeles Times) is not confirming this yet suggests caution should be applied. Don't forget major media outlets erroneously reported Bob Hope dead once, too. (Around the same age, as it happened). (talk) 16:39, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

Plenty of sources are now appearing through Google News, including New York Times and BBC - also CNN seems to be referring to this EW report. Dl2000 (talk) 16:56, 11 November 2010 (UTC)
Most of the sources though were reporting second-hand and indicating they had yet to confirm. CNN, however, has contacted the family directly and confirmed the death here which is good enough for me. I'll add this link if one hasn't been added already. (PS Note that the date of death was actually wrong initially, before the confirmed reports began to circulate, so that's one reason why it was good to be a little cautious.)
