After an extensive search, comic book (“Y: The Last Man,” “Ex Machina”) and “Lost” writer Brian K. Vaughan has been tapped to pen Showtime’s drama series adaptation of Stephen King’s 2009 novel “Under the Dome”, from DreamWorks Television, says Deadline.
The supernatural thriller revolves around locals at a Maine vacation spot who battle one another when a force field suddenly surrounds their town and cuts them off from the rest of the world. DreamWorks’ Steven Spielberg and Stacey Snider originally secured the rights to King’s novel shortly after it was published in November 2009.
In other news, Joni Sighvattson’s Palomar Pictures (Killer Elite, Brothers) has launched a partnership with Grosvenor Park on a package of three films — one being an adaptation of Stephen King’s 1995 fantasy novel “Rose Madder”. Naomi Sheridan (In America) penned the screenplay that’s based on a woman who’s on the run from her abusive husband and is able to travel into a painting. Variety reports.
