The upcoming novel from Stephen King and his son Owen titled SLEEPING BEAUTIES has quite the buzz surrounding it. Still not on shelves yet, the book looks to be getting a shot at television.
According to Deadline the entertainment company Anonymous Content has acquired the rights to SLEEPING BEAUTIES. The plan is for Stephen and Owen King to team together as father and son to develop the book into a TV series.
Michael Sugar and Ashley Zalta from Anonymous Content will executive produce the SLEEPING BEAUTIES series.
The project is now in the very early stages of development, so details are very slim.
Here is the synopsis for the novel:
"In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep; they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent; and while they sleep they go to another place…
The men of our world are abandoned, left to their increasingly primal devices. One woman, however, the mysterious Evie, is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease. Is Evie a medical anomaly to be studied? Or is she a demon who must be slain?
Set in a small Appalachian town whose primary employer is a women's prison, SLEEPING BEAUTIES is a wildly provocative, gloriously absorbing father/son collaboration between Stephen King and Owen King."
