The tale of killer car Christine will be prowling onto cinema screens once more, following John Carpenter’s 1983 version.
The Stephen King revival continues apace with the news that Bryan Fuller has been placed in the driving seat (sorry) to direct a new version of Stephen King’s classic horror novel Christine. That’s the one about a possessed 1958 Plymouth Fury that embarks on a murderous killing spree.
Whilst Fuller is best known for the high-profile TV shows he has overseen, such as American Gods, Star Trek: Discovery and Hannibal, this project will mark his feature film directorial debut.
The project is reportedly still in the early stages of development, and the plans for the film about ‘a nerdish boy who buys a strange car with an evil mind of its own before his nature starts to change to reflect it’ are to stick closely to King’s source material whilst also keeping the 1980s setting from John Carpenter’s version.
Carpenter’s 1983 version for which he also co-composed the music, (like many of his projects,) remains a really fun watch, so it will be interesting to see what Fuller, a respected writer, can add to the story.
Sony and Blumhouse are producing the film, with Jason Blum producing. We’ll bring you more details on this one as we hear them.
