As 'Stranger Things'' Creators Prepare An Adaptation Of Stephen King's 'The Talisman,' The Author Is Considering Completing The Book's Trilogy

Of the many Stephen King adaptations that are currently in the works, easily one of the most exciting is Netflix's "The Talisman," which is being produced by "Stranger Things" creators Matt and Ross Duffer as well as legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg. As of right now, we don't know for sure when we'll actually get to see the show (in part because of the on-going WGA strike), but there has been an interesting development that could impact the project in the big picture: King is apparently mulling the possibility of writing a second sequel to his 1984 novel, which was co-written by Peter Straub and previously inspired a follow-up titled "Black House" that was published in 2001.

Straub passed away last fall at the age of 79, but Stephen King has revealed on a new episode of the "Talking Scared" podcast that he is considering writing a book that would complete the trilogy that starts with "The Talisman" and "Black House." The author brought it up unprompted when he was asked if he'll ever make a dense, large scale epic like "The Stand," "IT," "Under The Dome" or "11.22.63" again, and he suggested that the possible sequel would fit that description.
