If you’ve ever watched about 10 seconds of Netflix Strange things, you know that series creators Mate Y Ross Duffer enjoy the works of both Stephen King Y Steven Spielberg. Today, in news that feels inevitable, THR reports that the Duffers are partnering with Spielberg to produce a television adaptation of King’s novel, The talisman that the master of terror co-wrote and published with Peter straub in 1984. Curtis gwinn, writer and executive producer of Strange things, will also write and act as showrunner on the Talisman.

This project takes a long time to come, especially for Spielberg, who took over the rights to The talisman in 1982, two years before its publication. There are many reasons why a movie never quite worked out in the 35 years since:The Handmaid’s Tale director Mike barker was most recently attached to a feature film adaptation in 2019, but the source material is a sprawling epic that alternates between our world and its fantastic alternate universe, The Territories. Here is the official synopsis of the book:

Why had twelve-year-old Jack Sawyer’s mother frantically moved the two of them from Rodeo Drive to a New York City apartment to the Alhambra, a run-down spa and closed amusement park in New Hampshire? Who or what is he fleeing from? She is dying . . . and even young Jack knows that he cannot outrun death. But only he can save her, because he has been chosen to seek a prize in an epic landscape of dangers and lies, a kingdom of innocents and monsters, where everything Jack loves is at stake.

The talisman is created as a co-production between Amblin TV and the Duffers’ Monkey Massacre Productions. King himself is also an executive producer, as is Paramount Television.
