“Fault in Our Stars” and “New Mutants” director Josh Boone will write Amblin Entertainment’s adaptation of Stephen King’s novel “The Talisman.” Although he’s currently just set to pen the script, there is a possibility he could eventually direct as well.

Frank Marshall is producing the film with Michael Wright exec producing.

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.

I'll give Josh Boone this much, he's ambitious as hell, and seemingly wants to adapt every Stephen King property ever. We'll see, Amblin has been trying to adapt The Talisman since the early 90s at least.

Cautiously optimistic. I loved the book, so a faithful adaptation could be really cool.

“Universal bought the book for me, so it wasn’t optioned. It was an outright sale of the book,” Spielberg told Entertainment Weekly. “ 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.”

Spielberg is talking about The Talisman again. I predict another 30-ish years of development hell. :laugh:

What, no love for New Mutants? ;)

New Mutants is OK imo (6/10) if it is watched at home with the subtitles on.
It’s because of thick accents.
New Mutants is not a horror movie. It’s a fantasy adventure. I kept my expectations low.
Think of it like mutants are in a contained school setting like Harry Potter. Then it kind of works.

I made that comment when New Mutants was sitting on the shelf. :laugh:
