Netflix's 'Stranger Things' makes no secret that it was heavily influenced by the work of Stephen King and Steven Spielberg – indeed, it's a veritable love letter to their 80s fantasy/horror films and series. But now King and Spielberg heir apparent JJ Abrams are taking it on with their own series, 'Castle Rock'.

Abrams' Bad Robot Productions tweeted a handwritten note that reads: "What is the hoax in the forest?" along with a link to this YouTube clip.

This shows a journey through some of King's best-known characters and novels, before revealing the show's title.

Castle Rock is a town in King's fictional universe that has played host to stories including 'The Dead Zone' and 'The Body' (adapted to the screen as 'Stand By Me').

The show will reportedly be written by Sam Shaw and Dusty Thomason and will be based on King's short stories. But apart from that, very little is known at this point.

Can King prove he's still the master of this kind of storytelling? We'll find out when the show airs on Hulu at some point in the future.
