Josh Boone to direct ‘Revival’ adaptation?

From the Deadline website:

On spec and in concert with producer Michael De Luca and author Stephen King, Boone has penned an adaptation of Revival, based on King’s 2014 bestseller about a charismatic preacher who loses his faith when his wife and child are killed in a tragic accident. Unhinged from the religion that grounded and gave him a conscience, the preacher becomes ruthless in his experimentation into the healing but dangerous power of electrical current, positioning him to act as God-like faith healer and opening a terrifying Pandora’s Box. Intertwined with the preacher is a young man with demons of his own, who has benefited from the preacher’s talents and becomes a reluctant accomplice to his deadly obsession.

Boone and De Luca have submitted the script to Universal, where the producer has a first-look deal; it will likely find a home quickly if that studio doesn’t spark to the tale. Aside from those feature projects, Boone and his Mid-World Productions cohorts Knate Lee and Jill Killington are separately working on projects that include a soon-to-be-announced three-season adaptation of Walter Mosley’s Easy Rawlins detective series at a network Boone wouldn’t name. It’s designed to cover a period ranging from the Watts riots to the L.A. riots, with mysteries to be solved, along the way.
