Bryan Fuller To Write New Film Adaptation For Stephen King’s ‘Christine’
The Stephen King classic, Christine, is set for another film reboot, as Blumhouse and Sony Pictures enlist the help of writer Bryan Fuller.
According to Deadline, Fuller is set to both write and direct the new film. Jason Blum, Vincenzo Natali and Steven Hoban will be producing.
The original film, Christine, was produced in 1983 and directed by John Carpenter. Based on the Stephen King novel by the same name – the story follows a young man’s transformation from an introverted teen into a cool extrovert, after he buys a 1958 Plymouth Fury. It becomes apparent that there is more to the new car than meets the eye and horror ensues.
Fuller is a known horror film buff who pays tribute to some of his favourite horror franchises on social media.
His previous work includes Hannibal, American Gods, Pushing Daisies and Star Trek: Discovery. This will be Fuller’s second adaptation of King’s work, having written the 2002 script for ‘Carrie‘.
