Steven Spielberg secured the rights of the novel back in the early '80s
'Stranger Things' makers, the Duffer Brothers, and director Steven Spielberg are collaborating to develop a series adaptation of Steven King and Peter Straub's horror novel The Talisman.
The brothers, who are currently busy with season four of Stranger Things, are set to adapt the Netflix series through Spielberg’s Amblin Television and Paramount Television Studios.
According to reports, Spielberg has secured the rights of the novel back in the early '80s and initially wanted to turn it into a film.
Shooting has not begun yet; however, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Stranger Things writer and executive producer Curtis Gwinn will serve as the showrunner for the new series.
The 1984 horror-fantasy novel revolves around a twelve-year-old boy, Jack Sawyer, who has to find a crystal called "the Talisman" to save his dying mother.
