Blockbuster author Stephen King has announced via social media his new collaboration with filmmaker J.J. Abrams for Hulu. “JJAbrams and I want to invite you to take a trip to Castle Rock. Soon. Be afraid,” King tweeted Friday.
The post accompanied a 70-second video clip that showed a dark screen, crisscrossed with red threads and featuring the voices of numerous characters from movies and TV projects based on King’s novels.
King titles such as Salem’s Lot and Needful Things; locations like Shawshank State Prison and The Barrens; and character names such as Annie Wilkes, Pennywise and Danny Torrance scroll across the screen as the movie audio quotes play.
Many of King’s previous works were set in and around the fictional town of Castle Rock.
No casting or air date for its namesake Hulu project have been announced yet.
King and Abrams were behind the limited series 11.22.63, which revisits the Kennedy assassination.
