Josh Boone to Write and Possibly Direct Stephen King's The Talisman

Josh Boone to Write and Possibly Direct Stephen King's The Talisman

A steady stream of his writing is always seemingly in development and now we have The Fault In Our Stars/New Mutants director Josh Boone brought on board to adapt The Talisman. Frank Marshall will produce The Talisman with Michael Wright, the latter being an executive producer for the film. "The Talisman" is a 1984 fantasy novel that King co-wrote with Peter Straub.

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 fading ocean resort and shuttered amusement park in New Hampshire?

Along the way, he learns of an alternate universe known as The Territories, where "twinners" (alternate versions of people from our own world) live. Jack has to travel through both the USA and the Territories to find an object known as the Talisman, which is believed to save his mother's life. Hollywood earlier adapted Stephen's novels "It" and the "Dark Tower" into films. The original plan was to adapt The Talisman into a television series but will now be developed into a film by Boone instead. He recently helmed Fox's "X-Men" spinoff "New Mutants" with Anya Taylor-Joy and also wrote "The Pretenders" from James Franco.
