J.J. Abrams brought Captain Kirk, Dr. McCoy, and Spock back for a new generation, has signed on to direct the new Star Wars film, and now is in talks to direct a movie adaptation of Stephen King's time-travel novel, 11/22/63. Published in 2011, but orginally conceived in 1971, the novel tells the story of Jake Epping, a high school English teacher, who uses a portal within a diner to travel back in time where he tries to change history on the day of President Kennedy's assassination. We're also thinking that Abrams may have a thing about time-travel, right Lost fans?!
Warner Bros. is reportedly also involved in the project. There's also a chance that the book will be adapted into a mini-series or a full-length television series rather than a movie, especially given the length of the novel.
