Stephen King Movies? The Talisman? – SCI-FI / FANTASY

Posted on Posted in Sci-Fi Fantasy

Or, maybe stated a little differently “of all the possible Stephen King Movies” when it finally arrives will The Talisman make the “most popular” list? The Talisman”, a Short Film by Mathieu Ratthe, is based on a novel by Stephen King and Peter Straub.

The main objective for creating this short film (online film) is to demonstrate Mathieu’s directing ability and his vision to the producers, Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy, who own the rights to The Talisman one of the next Stephen King Movies.

Among the key players who lent their support to this short film, The Talisman, are Cameron Bright (X-Men: The Last Stand, Birth) who starred in the leading role, and the Montreal-based company Buzz Image (300; The Aviator) who created the visual effects. The scene was shot in two days. Not bad as a strong example of what one of the next Stephen King Movies could feel like.
