'New Mutants' Director Josh Boone To Write Stephen King's 'The Talisman' Adaptation

Stephen King's 'The Talisman' Movie Taps Writer Josh Boone (EXCLUSIVE)

More Stephen King is making its way to the silver screen.

Variety reports that Josh Boone will write a movie adaptation of King's novel The Talisman for Amblin Entertainment. Although he's now just set to pen the script, there is a possibility he could eventually come on as a director as well.

The Talisman was first written by King and Peter Straub in 1984 and has produced one sequel with another reportedly in the works.

The Talisman follows young Jack Sawyer, who travels from New Hampshire to California to save his cancer-stricken mother. Frank Marshall will produce The Talisman with Michael Wright, the latter being an executive producer for the film. On his way, he gets to know about an alternate universe known as The Territories, where "twinners", parallel versions of people, live.

Amblin was initially developing the project as a TV show, but since chose to make it into a movie. Jack must travel through both the USA and the Territories to find an object known as the Talisman, which he believes will save his mother's life. He recently helmed Fox's "X-Men" spinoff "New Mutants" with Anya Taylor-Joy and also wrote "The Pretenders" from James Franco.

New Mutants will be out on 13 April next year.
