Jurassic Park turned 25 years old earlier this week, and testimonials and tributes have been popping up all over the internet. How the film was a nerd haven. How it was a game changer. How it made history. How it was a “dinosaur-sized leap” in computer effects. How it was just a damn good movie.
We’ve been blessed with many fantastic collaborations over the years, but there’s still one that I’m dying to see: Steven Spielberg and Stephen King. The former has owned the rights to the latter’s fantasy-horror novel The Talisman for over three decades, and the highly-desirable (and super ambitious) Beard x King collab has almost come to fruition a few times — before ultimately hitting one roadblock or another. But according to Spielberg himself, his adaptation of The Talisman is still very much in the works.
