The conveyor belt of Stephen King adaptations is still in full flow, with another story about to be transferred to the big screen.

So let's just hope that it's more of an It rather than a Dark Tower situation.

The next novel to get the adaptation treatment is The Talisman, according to Variety, and the script's set to be written by Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone.

The Talisman, written by Stephen King and Peter Straub, follows a young boy who sets out to find a crystal called "the Talisman" to stop his mother from dying.

The journey that follows leads the boy into a series of Territories – parallel universes, basically – that are as weird, wonderful and sinister as you'd expect from King.

The Talisman isn't the only King work being lined up for a big screen remake, as it was recently announced that his short story Suffer the Little Children is being turned into a movie, too.

Suffer the Little Children – published as part of Nightmares & Dreamscapes – is a supernatural thriller about a teacher who notices "unsettling" traits in the children in her class.

And if you're a King fan with a phobia of cinemas (there's a horror theme that hasn't been mined), there's also the Castle Rock TV series to enjoy.

Starring It's Bill Skarsgård, Castle Rock is a dramatisation of the author's literary universe, following a series of interlocking mysteries.

It's never been a better time to be a horror fan, has it?
