The 2013 bestselling novel NOS4A2, by Joe Hill, the son of literary legend Stephen King, is getting a TV adaption by AMC according to Deadline. Michael Eisner’s Tornante TV and AMC Studios will be producing the project.
The supernatural story centers on Victoria “Vic” McQueen, a young woman with the uncanny ability for finding things lost. Unfortunately, her gift is also destroying her mind. Her search for help leads her to Charlie Manx, a psychopath with abilities similar to her own. Manx has survived for centuries by abducting people in his 1938 Rolls-Royce (with the license plate NOS4A2) and draining them of their souls to keep himself forever young. When Manx kidnaps Vic’s son she will enter Manx’s dark world in a bid to find her son before it’s too late.
Hill has several projects in development based on his novels, including The Fireman,Locke & Key, Heart Shaped Box and the adaption of the novel In The Tall Grass, which he co-wrote with his father, for a film. Hill’s novel Horns was adapted for film in 2014 and starred Daniel Radcliffe and Juno Temple.
