There has been whispers for a while, but it’s now been confirmed that the next Stephen King story to get the remake film treatment is CHRISTINE and Hannibal’s Showrunner Bryan Fuller has been confirmed to write and direct this new take.

Halloween legend John Carpenter brought the book originally to the big screen in 1983 and it’s been reported that this new film will be set in the 80s era.

Both the book and film are huge favourites among horror fans, so we await with interest to see how this new version turns out.

Here is the original synopsis:

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
