TV: My ‘Twilight Eyes’ Tell Me Dean Koontz is Gaining Hollywood Steam!

Deadline is reporting that Starz may be ready to roll out its first original limited series, an adaptation of Dean Koontz’ 1985 novel “Twilight Eyes.” The project, which centers on Slim MacKenzie, who uses his psychic powers, aka Twilight Eyes, to hunt Goblins — monsters that have the ability to mimic human beings — is in high-priority development.

Koontz’s former agent Rob Lee, now head of his own production company Bayonne Entertainment, is co-adapting with writer Stephen Tolkin, who had adapted two Koontz novels as TV movies, 1997′s “Intensity” and 1998′s “Mr. Murder.”

While the events in the book take place even before the 1980s, the adaptation will be set in present day.

On the feature side, an adaptation of Koontz’s Old Thomas written and to be directed by Stephen Sommers, is in pre-production with Tim Robbins, William Dafoe and Anton Yelchin starring.
