Last we had heard it was Showtime that was interested in bringing the J.J Abram backed film version of the fantastic Stephen King novel 11/22/63 to the masses but it appears as if things have changed.
Variety is reporting that the 9 hour adaptation will now air on Hulu. No decision of if it will be made available to Hulu plus customers only but I suspect such things will be revealed in the coming months. It will be released in 9 one hour long episodes.
J.J. Abrams released the following statement: “I’ve been a fan of Stephen King since I was in junior high school. The chance to work with him at all, let alone on a story so compelling, emotional and imaginative, is a dream. We are thrilled to be working with Hulu on this very special project.”
Next up – find a cast and start filming. No word on when all that will go down but keep checking back in as I will update as information dictates.
