Fans looking for a fantasy show beyond the final episode of Game of Thrones may be in luck, as Hulu is currently set to adapt a bestselling fantasy novel by Stephen King.
According to Deadline, Hulu will develop a pilot based on The Eyes of the Dragon, King’s 1984 fantasy novel, which tells the story of two brothers, and a struggle for control of the kingdom of Delain.
Deadline reports Seth Grahame-Smith (Lego Batman Movie, It) is serving as showrunner. Grahame-Smith is also set to write the first episode, and will executive produce alongside Bill Haber (Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow), Roy Lee (It), and Jon Berg (Aquaman).
For more entertainment news, Robert Pattinson is reportedly on the shortlist for actors who will play the dark knight in the upcoming Matt Reeves film, The Batman, which will also reportedly include three major villains from his famous Rogues Gallery.
