The Dark Tower, Gerald’s Game, Mr Mercedes, Castle Rock, IT… has there ever been a better time to be a fan of Stephen King?

Well, get ready for more excitement as King and Peter Straub’s The Talisman is coming too with Fault In Our Stars and New Mutants (awesome trailer here) director Josh Boone set to pen the script with the possibility of also directing.

The movie will, like the book, follow a young boy who must enter a parallel world to find a magical Talisman that can save his mother.

This one is still just developing but we’ll keep you posted as and when more develops.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
