Stephen King And Steven Spielberg Team Up For Under The Dome!

Steven Spielberg Stephen King Under the Dome Television

Stephen King's super eery sci-fi novel, Under the Dome, is about to get the television treatment as he and Steven Spielberg team up with DreamWorks Television.

King will executive produce the series along with Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank. So far, no writers have been attached yet.

The series will revolve around locals trapped in a mysterious dome.

As the official website reads, the story goes a little something like this:

On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester’s Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener’s hand is severed as “the dome” comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when—or if—it will go away.

Dale Barbara, Iraq vet and now a short-order cook, finds himself teamed with a few intrepid citizens—town newspaper owner Julia Shumway, a physician’s assistant at the hospital, a selectwoman, and three brave kids. Against them stands Big Jim Rennie, a politician who will stop at nothing—even murder—to hold the reins of power, and his son, who is keeping a horrible secret in a dark pantry. But their main adversary is the Dome itself. Because time isn’t just short. It’s running out.

OooOOooh! This is going to be SO GOOD!

We can't wait. Aren't U excited about it too?

    the pairing of these 2 men means that this will shoot to the top of everyone's must see list!
    for sure will be at the top of mine



  2. 2

    ummm have you seen the Simpsons movie? duh



  3. 3

    I read the book, it should be an amazing movie!



  4. 4

    so awesome! I love that book - well it's horrible but still pretty cool to read. Except the ending anyway…. -.-



  5. 5

    Personally, I'd rather see them do something with "The Dark Tower" series. But I'll watch anything by Stephen King and/or Speilberg.

    eery………really???



  7. 7

    i am of course excited about it however i do want to voice a complaint now i saw a movie cant remember the name and it said effects by speilberg 'recently' the whole movie started with this amazing sunami this woman was french and shes in the sunami dies comes back yes stephen u know the one well the problem was that once that start up was majorly exciting of course in true speilberg style but then the rest of the movie just dropped out badly and sunk like a stone i would suggest next time u stick that kind of stuff further from the front its no use to have a big opening if the rest of the film is crap ty …

    Yeah, have they ever seen a movie called "The Simpsons Movie?" Oh yeah, it's Hollywood. They copy everything.

    This is one of King's worst books… Why can't they do Cell or Duma Key instead?!



  10. 10

    Duma Key was terrible. Most anti-climatic ending ever. I'm psyched for Under the Dome!!

    I read the book and devoured it… everything was awesome and super exciting till the ending. I felt like Ralphie "Be sure to drink your Ovaltine" Are you kidding me? After my investment of reading all 1000+ pages I got stuck w/ one of the worst ending ever. I will still watch it if its a movie, maybe Speilberg can come up w/ something better than the book.

    Under the dome was great until the last 20 - 30 pages. It seemed as if King got tired of writing, and the ending sadly reflected it. Let's hope that the end of the TV movie is more entertaining.

    Re: MrsTower – I think if they developed the characters more in this then it could be much better… The only character I really cared about was the little boy whose brother died trying to drive into the dome right at the start and then his parents killed themselves. And I hated the mayor and his son but that was it really, the rest of the characters were pretty meh.



  14. 14

    when did he write this? it sounds like a rip off from a graphic novel I read (not by him)



  15. 15

    Read the book, this could be freakin awesome, I am excited!!!!!!!!



  16. 16

    This looks good, we covered it on ScienceFiction.com and I'm wondering if it will live up to the hype.



  17. 17

    Yeees. I love Stephen, he may give out books as often as Bollywood releases films, but he is one good suspense writer. That's for sure.



  18. 18

    Sooooooo its The Simpsons movie but not cartoon???



  19. 19

    I believe you mean eerie…

    Anytime a King book is developed for a made for TV movie it pretty much turns out cheesy. I'm hoping Spielberg will not let that happen. Especially to this excellent book. I really wish it were going to be a theatrical release. The adaptation of the Mist was phenomenal.
