    It's a storyboard -- not meant to be a work of art.

    Exactly. Who cares about storyboards? It's the (hopefully upcoming) movie that matters!

    I don't care if the storyboard art looks like a 5 year old drew it, I'm still excited that the movie is even a possibility.

    After seeing Dark Tower, I have no positive expectations for this movie. It might be best done as a limited tv series on netflix or amazon. But they will try to cram too much into a 2 hour movie, and it will suck. It happens again and again with these adaptations. I don't know why they feel like they should even bother.

    https://consequenceofsound.net/2018/...-the-talisman/
    Talk about timing: Consequence of Sound’s own Stephen King podcast, The Losers’ Club, is tackling King and Peter Straub’s fantasy epic, The Talisman, next week, right on the heels of news that Steven Spielberg himself might finally be bringing the book to the big screen.

    In a new Entertainment Weekly article outlining the various projects King and Spielberg have discussed over the years, there’s a quote from the latter that should get fans of Jack Sawyer, Wolf, and that nefarious Morgan Sloat excited. “I feel that in the very near future, that’s going to be our richest collaboration,” Spielberg said. “Universal bought the book for me, so it wasn’t optioned. It was an outright sale of the book. I’ve owned the book since ’82, and I’m hoping to get this movie made in the next couple of years. I’m not committing to the project as a director, I’m just saying that it’s something that I’ve wanted to see come to theaters for the last 35 years.”

    “Several times he came very close to making it, and there were a lot of discussions about that,” King added.

    Now would be a fitting time to bring up that Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment hired The Fault In Our Stars director and King superfan Josh Boone to pen a script back in the fall. That same bit of news also noted that Frank Marshall would be producing alongside executive producer Michael Wright, so the wheels are definitely turning.

    Of course, Boone himself is currently in reshoots for New Mutants, and also apparently involved in potential adaptations of The Stand and Revival for TV and film, respectively, so his plate is full. King’s is, too; in addition to Andy Muschietti’s upcoming It sequel and Hulu’s Castle Rock series, the author will see the likes of Pet Sematary, Doctor Sleep, and “The Bone Church” adapted for the screen, as well as whatever Amazon is up to with The Dark Tower.

    The Talisman is nearly 1,000 pages, however, not to mention absolutely epic in scope, so don’t be surprised if the project collapses beneath its own weight. That happened in the past, after all. EW’s article points out that the book was nearly adapted as a six-hour miniseries for TNT by screenwriter Ehren Kruger about a decade ago before falling apart. “At that time it was just too rich for TNT’s blood,” Spielberg said. “Then I pulled it back and decided to try to reconfigure it once again as a feature film.”

    If you haven’t already, subscribe to The Losers’ Club to stay up on the latest developments on this project and all the many, many others percolating out there.

    Me too. There's some real potential for it to make for a great movie.

    Sounds like it might really happen. I guess they could probably do this in one film. Fingers crossed that it really happens and that it a good adaptation. I haven't read it in a while but it is one of my favorites for sure.

    Ditto. I would love to see a good adaptation of this book. It could really translate to film so well if they do it right.

    The Duffer Brothers, whose own Stranger Things owes more than a few debts to King’s work, will executive produce a series adapting the book, that will be produced by Netflix in association with Spielberg’s Amblin Television and Paramount Television Studios.

    Curtis Gwinn, who worked as a writer-exec producer on Duffers’ Stranger Things, will act as writer and showrunner of the project, which is in development. With deals still being sewn up and in negotiations, Netflix and the production parties involved had no comment.

    That's not exactly fair, at least its "In-Play" again. Sounds like they will begin production soon and that's great news to me anyway.

    It's been in play since 2017. This article is just a reminder of something we've known for the past 4 years. That they plan on making a TV series of it. Some time... eventually... maybe....

    Well, sounds like they have some sort of schedule and the financing from, Netflix behind it. I know we have been here before, but I'm going to choose to be optomistic rather than crap on it. Worth noting that before now there wasn't the same thirst for content/stories that there clearly is now. So many channels, streaming services and films going back into production its an actual race to get content up and out there for viewers. The bigger the splash the more attention they draw to their service/product. I'd say that they're quite a bit more motivated today than say a year ago. To me that is cause for an optomistic outlook.

    If they do it right (always a BIG If) this could be an amazing episodic feature!!!!
