Hulu is developing a fantasy series adaptation of Stephen King’s novel Eyes of the Dragon.
The streaming service is making its first venture into the world of Stephen King, bringing his 1984 novel to the small screen.
King wrote the novel for his daughter Naomi. It tells the story of two boys who are next in line to rule the realm of Delain after the death of their dragon-slaying father.
Lego Batman Movie writer, Ghrahame-Smith, penned the pilot. Smith and his KatzSmith Productions partner David Katzenberg will serve as executive producers. The duo recently produced the film adaptation of King’s It.
“I am so excited to be working in the world of Stephen King 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.”
The project follows a line of forthcoming adaptations of King’s works, including Pet Sematary, and It: Chapter Two.
