The brothers behind Stranger Things are adapting Stephen King for Netflix.
Based on the absolute all-universe success of their original series, Stranger Things, The Duffer Brothers are starting their own production company (Upside Down, lol). One of their first projects will be adapting Stephen King and Peter Straub’s 1984 fantasy novel, The Talisman, which centers around a questing pubescent who must journey through an alternate—and very parallel!—universe to save his mother. As Matt Duffer told Deadline, of the book:
It’s much more fantasy. It has sci-fi. It has horror elements. It has a lot of heart. It has everything that we love. And it’s got the best werewolf character I think, ever.
Big talk, Duffer brother, big talk. Can the werewolf even play basketball?
