Steven Spielberg, Stephen King to Collaborate on ‘Under the Dome’ Adaptation

ALTSteven Spielberg and Stephen King are set to team with Showtime for a series based on the latter’s novel, Under the Dome.

King’s 2009 novel — whose rights were bought by Spielberg and his fellow DreamWorks higher-up Stacey Snider — centers on a town in Maine and the residents who are suddenly cut off from the rest of the world.

Spielberg previously collaborated with Showtime on United States of Tara. King, meanwhile, has been in the news recently regarding the collapse of the planned Dark Tower adaptations and his upcoming novel 11/22/63, which will be adapted for the big screen by Jonathan Demme.
