Stephen King's THE REAPER'S IMAGE Revealed

I love a good horror anthology, especially where Stephen King is involved. I think CREEPSHOW will forever be one of my all time favorites, and CAT'S EYE wasn't too bad either. So I'm pretty fucking excited now that now (thanks to Dread Central) we have some solid details involving the upcoming anthology made up of short stories by Stephen King and directed by Mark Pavia. The anthology will be titled STEPHEN KING'S THE REAPER'S IMAGE after one of his earliest (and best) short stories. The following short stories will make up the anthology:

The Reaper’s Image - This story was first published in Startling Mystery Stories in 1969 and collected in Skeleton Crew in 1985. The story is about an antique mirror haunted by the visage of the Grim Reaper, who appears to those who gaze into it. This was King’s second professional sale and commercially published story.
Mile 81 - A novella by Stephen King, released exclusively as an e-book on September 1, 2011. With the heart of Stand By Me and the genius horror of Christine, Mile 81 is the chilling story of an insatiable car and a heroic kid whose worlds collide at an abandoned rest stop on the Maine Turnpike.
N. - The story of a psychiatrist who falls victim to the same deadly obsession as his patient — an obsession that just might save the world! N. was published in King’s collection Just After Sunset in 2008. In March 2010 Marvel Comics published the first issue of a comic book adaptation of N., a four-issue limited series.
The Monkey - A short story first published in Gallery magazine in 1980 in the form of a small removable booklet. It was significantly revised and published in King’s collection Skeleton Crew in 1985. The story centers on a cymbal-banging monkey toy that is possessed by an evil spirit. Every time the monkey claps its little cymbals together, a nearby living thing dies. The monkey is found in a family’s attic in an old toy chest by two young brothers, unknowing that their father had been tormented by the monkey years ago, when it worked its lethal enchantment on his family and friends.
