Stephen King’s CHRISTINE getting a tune-up with new film adaptation with director Bryan Fuller.
Sony Pictures and Blumhouse are teaming up to produce a new film adaptation of Stephen King‘s Christine. Bryan Fuller has been brought in to helm the film.
The original 1983 film was directed by John Carpenter and is based on the King novel that tells the story of “a shy teen who comes out of his shell after he buys a ’58 Plymouth Fury to fix up. The car has a mind of its own, as well as a murderous past, and begins to change the young man and everyone around him in most dangerous fashion.”
It’s explained that Fuller’s intention “is to keep it in an ’80s time period and grounded in King’s bestseller.” So, it seems like we are actually going to get a proper adaptation of the book.
Jason Blum is producing for Blumhouse, and Vincenzo Natali and Steven Hoban are also producing. I am a huge fan of the original film and Carpenter’s work, but with the advancements in film, it could be very interesting to see a new adaptation.
