Susan V. Booth, director of "Ghost Brothers Of Darkland County," the musical collaboration between Stephen King and John Mellencamp, revealed in an interview this week that the project wasn't very high on the producer's priority list.

"To be honest," Booth explained over chops and creamed spinach at The Palm Too, "we all were really hot over this fantastic collaboration between Maya Angelou and the bass player from Eddie & The Hot Rods. Then, two more exciting projects fell in our laps, a new work based on Erica Jong's "Fear Of Flying," with music by Pitbull, and this fab piece by Toni Morrison, who had also expressed some interest in collaborating with the bass player from Eddie & The Hot Rods. But scheduling was a nightmare for all involved. So it is what it is."

During deliberations between producer and director, Stephen King finished 4 more novels and John Mellencamp delivered his new record to Ford Motors.

Oprah Winfrey, in the meantime, has been seen meeting with Maya Angelou, Toni Morrison and who she thinks might be the bass player of Eddie & The Hot Rods. Pitbull could not be reached for comment.
