Stephen King's 'The Talisman' Movie Taps Writer Josh Boone

Stephen King's 'The Talisman' Movie Taps Writer Josh Boone”

Another exciting development in the Stephen King world was the debut of the first trailer for Castle Rock, a Hulu series that explores the town that's the epicenter of many of King's stories.

Variety reports that Amblin Entertainment has selected Josh Boone, director of the hit romantic drama The Fault in Our Stars, to write the adaptation of King and co-author Peter Straub's The Talisman.

Boone has had a long-standing relationship with King, which started when he was chosen to write and direct an adaptation of the author's 1978 post-apocalyptic horror-fantasy novel The Stand.

The Talisman follows a boy who enters a parallel world in search of a powerful crystal known as the Talisman in hopes to save his mother who is dying from cancer. Jack must travel through both the US and the Territories to find an object known as the Talisman, that he believes will save his mother live.

While he's usually found directing movies, Boone is now only attached to write this one, though we'd imagine there is the option for more.

Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on Boone's feature film adaptation of King's The Talisman as we learn it. That adaptation is now in development. Eventually, Spielberg's regular producer Frank Marshall revived the project and after the King-assaince of 2017, and the breakout success of it in particular, the movie is heading up once again.
