Topic: Black House!

A while back i made a thread talking about rumors for The Talisman, To me this comes off sounding a bit odd but as i was surfing the net and i came across this bit of old news ( http://www.reallyscary.com/2005/09/king … -movie.asp ) Now since Black House is somewhat a sequel to The Talisman i would like to think that The Talisman would be the first to be made into a movie. (Now be warned if you have not read The Talisman but you are planing to, Well you might want to skip this because of spoilers) Black House is a book by  Stephen King & Peter Straub, The story goes something like this
(In the seemingly paradisal Wisconsin town of French Landing, small distortions disturb the beauty: a talking crow, an old man obeying strange internal marching orders, a house that is both there and not quite there. And roaming the town is a terrible fiend nicknamed the Fisherman, who is abducting and murdering small children and eating their flesh. The sheriff desperately wants the help of a retired Los Angeles cop, who once collared another serial killer in a neighboring town.
Of course, this is no ordinary policeman, but Jack Sawyer, hero of Stephen King and Peter Straub's 1984 fantasy The Talisman. At the end of that book, the 13-year-old Jack had completed a grueling journey through an alternate realm called the Territories, found a mysterious talisman, killed a terrible enemy, and saved the life of his mother and her counterpart in the Territories. Now in his 30s, Jack remembers nothing of the Talisman, but he also hasn't entirely forgotten. Jack is abruptly pulled into the case--and back into the Territories--by the Fisherman himself, who sends Jack a child's shoe, foot still attached. As Jack flips back and forth between French Landing and the Territories, aided by his 20-years-forgotten friend Speedy Parker and a host of other oddballs (including a blind disk jockey, the beautiful mother of one of the missing children, and a motorcycle gang calling itself the "Hegelian Scum"), he tracks both the Fisherman and a much bigger fish: the abbalah, the Crimson King who seeks to destroy the axle of worlds.)
Now they would have to tame this down a bit if it was made into a movie, Cause there was some realy harsh stuff to read in this book. Have any of you read it?, And if so what are your thoughts on a movie being made of this?

Re: Black House!

I read Black House and liked it as much as The Talisman.  I really can't figure out how they could make a movie of it without making Talisman first unless they're going to do some quick explain-type thing of what happened in the past.  I'd really like to see The Talisman first.

Re: Black House!

Hmm. I dont know what to say about this, but I think that the Talisman really needs to come first, seeing as the main character in Black House is the child in the Talisman. Both books are so loaded with content, though, I think it would take Hollywood a lot of chopping to condense them both into ONE movie. I dont think this is a good idea.
