‘New Mutants’ Director Tapped to Adapt Stephen King’s ‘The Talisman’ for the Big Screen
Hollywood simply cannot get enough King. In the last couple months we’ve seen not one, not two, but four Stephen King books adapted into films: The Dark Tower, It, Gerald’s Game and 1922. Showing no intention of slowing down, Amblin Entertainment is moving ahead with a film adaptation of The Talisman, a fantasy novel that King cowrote with Peter Straub in 1984.
Boone previously directed the romantic dramas The Fault in Our Stars and Stuck in Love, not exactly indicators of what he could do with the likes of The Talisman. Once New Mutants hits theaters in April we should have a better idea of what he is capable in the fantasy and action department.
No word yet on a release date for The Talisman.
