It seems as if it’s only a short matter of time before something Stephen King writes is adapted for a TV show or big screen movie, and that’s again proved to be the case with his upcoming Sleeping Beauties.
That new novel – which isn’t even released until September 26th – has already had its rights snapped up by Anonymous Content. A collaboration between Stephen and son Owen King, as per Deadline, Sleeping Beauties will be turned into a TV series and will feature both Kings as producers.
Set in small town Appalachian, the synopsis for this upcoming tale reads:
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?
