Stephen King’s ‘The Talisman’ Movie Might Finally Happen, with ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ Director Mike Barker
Posted on Tuesday, March 12th, 2019 by Chris Evangelista
The Talisman, the fantasy-horror novel from Stephen King and Peter Straub, has been in one stage or another of film or TV development before it even hit bookshelves in 1984. Steven Spielberg snapped up the film rights immediately and has been working with Amblin to bring the book to life – with nothing to show for it…yet. Now, Amblin is trying once again, with Handmaid’s Tale director Mike Barker at the helm and Chris Sparling handling the script.
