The creators of Stranger Things have found their next project for Netflix.

The Duffer Brothers are collaborating with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television and Paramount Television Studios to adapt Stephen King’s The Talisman for the streaming platform, per The Hollywood Reporter. Curtis Gwinn, a writer and executive producer on Stranger Things, will serve as showrunner on the project.

The Talisman was written by Stephen King and Peter Straub. The fantasy novel follows a teenage boy named Jack Sawyer searching for the Talisman, an object that can heal his dying mother and save the world. Sawyer journeys across America and “the Territories,” a grim parallel world to our own.

Spielberg purchased the screen rights for The Talisman in 1982, 2 years before the book was even published. In 2019, Mike Barker, a frequent director on The Handmaid’s Tale, was involved in adapting the work into a feature.

The Duffer Brothers are currently busy working on Season 4 of Stranger Things, which is expected to premiere later this year. The series has expanded its cast for the next season, nabbing actors like A Nightmare on Elm Street’s Robert Englund and Game of Thrones’ Tom Wlaschiha.

The Talisman marks the next project in a line of recent Stephen King adaptations from Hollywood, including the Doctor Sleep, the It films, HBO’s The Outsider and Hulu’s Castle Rock. In 2017, Netflix released two King adaptations, Gerald’s Game and 1922.
