Deadline reports that Hulu have made a deal to develop a pilot based on Eyes of the Dragon.
Hulu has made a deal to develop a pilot based on the King novel Eyes of the Dragon, which was first published in 1984. Seth Grahame-Smith (Lego Batman Movie) writing the opening episode and serving as the showrunner. Fox 21 is the studio. Grahame and his KatzSmith partner David Katzenberg will be exec producers along with Bill Haber, Roy Lee and Jon Berg.
“I am so excited to be working in the world of Stephen King with with Hulu, which has such a terrific track record with Stephen King adaptations,” Grahame-Smith told Deadline. “The goal for this series is to feel unlike any Stephen King adaptation before, with this rich underlying source material, and the only true fantasy book he wrote that has kings and swords and princesses. We will honor the spirit of the book and the legacy.”
Some additional information has appeared on the King 2020 book, If you bleed . Some sources say King said the title was If it bleeds from the words "If it bleeds it". I guess we have to wait and see what the right title is.
I also hear that the king said that the story is about a news anchor / journalist who is also a kind of vampire feed on human suffering when he chases his stories.
As always when many people hear the same thing, they will perceive it differently and therefore the information is a little fuzzy. Hopefully we will soon have more accurate info.
Oh, and I also heard that the king said he was thinking of a sequel to Salem's Lot .
At the Workplay festival King didn't only play with his band, The Rock Bottom Remainders, he also announced during a talk with Benjamin Percy that his next book will be called If You Bleed. He also revealed that Holly Gibney will be the main character in the book. It's being released in 2020.
