Christopher Webster [Celluloid 09.22.14] book scifi thriller

Hulu has ordered a 9-episode straight-to-series order for an adaptation of Stephen King's 2011 book 11/22/63 about a time traveler who goes back to the 60s to stop the Kennedy assassination.

The series will be produced by J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot production company.

“If I ever wrote a book that cries out for long-form, event TV programming, 11/22/63 is it,” King said. “I’m excited that it’s going to happen, and am looking forward to working with J.J. Abrams and the whole Bad Robot team.”

Back in 2012, Jonathan Demme tried to work with King on an adaption, but the union eventually fell apart with Demme stating: "This is a big book, with lots in it. And I loved certain parts of the book for the film more than Stephen did. We're friends, and I had a lot of fun working on the script, but we were too apart on what we felt should be in and what should be out of the script... I had an option and I let it go. But I hope it's moving forward, I really want to see that movie."

Well, Demme, looks like you got your wish.

Order 11/22/63 here.
