Josh Boone To Write Film Adaptation of Stephen King’s The Talisman

The Fault in Our Stars and New Mutants writer Josh Boone is set to write the big screen adaptation of the Stephen King and Peter Straub novel “The Talisman,”. The novel was released in 1984 and was nominated for both the Locus and World Fantasy Awards in 1985. They wrote a sequel to “The Talisman” called “Black House” in 2001. There is reportedly a third book in the works. The adaptation comes to us from Amblin Entertainment, which had originally been planning the project as a television series. Frank Marshall will produce the film with Michael Wright will executive produce.

The description of “The Talisman” reads: “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? Who or what is she running from? She is dying . . . and even young Jack knows she can’t outrun death. But only he can save her—for he has been chosen to search for a prize across an epic landscape of dangers and lies, a realm of innocents and monsters, where everything Jack loves is on the line.”

Boone was writing an adaptation of King’s “The Stand,” though the project was put on hold. King also had him write an adaptation of “The Revival,” which is in development. The Dark Tower and IT are the most recent Stephen King works to be adapted to the big screen.
