The Sequel That Didn't Happen; Sleepwalkers 2

It seems that King's wife Tabitha King wrote a treatment for a sequel to Sleepwalkers that involved a women’s basketball team somehow. Here is what Mick Garris says on Post Mortem:

“There was a little bit of talk. I mean, the movie was successful, it was the #1 movie the week that it came out. I never heard the studio talk about it, but Tabitha King, Stephen King’s wife, actually wrote a treatment for a sequel to Sleepwalkers that involved a women’s basketball team somehow. I’m not sure how, I never read it, but King was very excited that Tabby came up with this. But it was a sequel that nobody at the studio gave a shit about. You know, they liked the money that Sleepwalkers made, but it was not a prestige release by any means, so they never even thought about Sleepwalkers after.”
