The Talisman back later this year?

Ehren Kruger hopes that The Talisman will get back underway later this year. Here is what he said in an interview:

"It looked like it was going to happen with a couple different directors, but creative differences intervened for the moment," says Kruger. "Hopefully, it will get back underway later this year. It was quite difficult to adapt as my mandate was to craft a two-hour movie from an 800-page book. A miniseries might be more faithful, but you’d miss the feature-film scale. So there was a constant struggle to determine what could be kept and what had to go. Some other writers have since worked on it and hopefully it’ll all get solved. There’s a wonderful story and characters at its core."
