Although the book won't hit shelves until June, The Help writer-director Tate Taylor is already eyeing an adaptation of Stephen King's latest, Joyland. Deadline reports that Taylor has picked up an option to adapt and direct the hard-boiled thriller, officially described as follows:

Set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever.

Prior to The Help, Taylor made his directorial debut with 2008's Pretty Ugly People. He's also said to be working on a James Brown biopic.

Taylor will also produce alongside John Norris and his Wyolah Films.
