Well, he won’t direct it, that much is almost certain given his current slate – but J.J. Abrams‘ Bad Robot shingle is currently negotiating for the rights to the Stephen King book “11/22/63”. The development of the project will happen through Warner Bros. TV, where Bad Robot has a deal.
Per Deadline, “ the plan is to adapt the book as a TV series or mini-series, likely for cable.”
The book, “centers on Jake, an unassuming divorced English teacher who stumbles upon a time portal that leads to 9/9/1958 and goes on a quest to try and prevent the assassination of John F. Kennedy which occurred on 11/22/1963.”
Are you more stoked for this or “Under The Dome”?
