The great Stephen King revival is upon us and next on the list is The Talisman, which has enlisted Fault in Our Stars and New Mutants director Josh Boone to write the Amblin Entertainment’s adaptation, Variety reports. Although he’s currently just set to pen the script, there is a possibility he could eventually direct as well.
Based on the best-selling novel, the movie follows a boy, who in order to save his mother from certain death, enters a parallel world known as the Territories in search of a powerful talisman.
Amblin had initially been developing the project as a TV show, but has since decided to turn it into a film.
Boone has had a long-standing relationship with the author after being tapped to write and direct an adaptation of “The Stand.” When that project was put on hold, the iconic writer tasked Boone with penning an adaptation of “Revival,” which is currently in development.
