J.J. Abrams and Stephen King tease secret Hulu project Castle Rock
What is Castle Rock? J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and horror maestro Stephen King both shared posts on social media on Friday night teasing a new Hulu project called Castle Rock. The pair previously collaborated on the streaming service’s series 11.22.63.
The fictional Maine town Castle Rock should sound familiar to King readers as it has been the setting for books like Cujo and Needful Things. But the teaser features lines from several of King’s other works as well as character names (Annie Wilkes from Misery; Danny Torrance from The Shining) and locations (the store from Things; Shawshank State Prison from The Shawshank Redemption).
Could this be a series where all of King’s iconic tales interact? Hulu isn’t talking but we are very ready to visit Castle Rock.
