Spielberg developing Under The Dome

Steven Spielberg and Stephen King are teaming up to adapt King's latest novel, Under The Dome as a TV miniseries.

DreamWorks TV has the rights to the novel which finds an invisible forcefield suddenly appearing over a small town in Maine (it's King, so the location's not a shocker).

As the place becomes cut off from the rest of the world, the locals must fight for their survival and warring factions start to cause problems for everyone.

It'll be the first time they've worked together in ages, following on from Spielberg optioning King's novel The Talisman, which he's tried to make work as both a film and a TV series, but has yet to crack the budget issues.

Let's hope he gets things moving a little more quickly this time...
