Steven Spielberg Still Plans to Adapt Stephen King and Peter Straub’s The Talisman



Last year, Steven Spielberg’s production company Amblin announced that they were moving forward with an adaptation of Stephen King’s The Talisman. They hired screenwriter Josh Boone (The New Mutants) to pen the script and Boone even shared a storyboard a few months back (see below).

But since then word has been quiet on Amblin’s The Talisman. Until today that is when Steven Spielberg himself talked to EW and said he still plans to make the book into a feature film.

I feel that in the very near future, that’s going to be our richest collaboration,” Spielberg says. “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.”

The Talisman is produced by Frank Marshall with Michael Wright exec producing.
