Hyde Park Entertainment have named their director for the next installment of the Stephen King adaptation renaissance, From A Buick 8. According to Deadline, William Brent Bell, whose credits include The Boy, The Devil Inside, and Wer, will take control of the wheel on the evil car horror.
From A Buick 8 was originally published in 2002, and tells the story of a mysterious 1954 Buick Roadmaster, which has been kept locked up by the rural town Pennsylvania police department for over twenty years, before strange occurrences in the area lead people to believe that the car is in fact the gateway to another dimension.
After Christine, it’s the second King book to prominently feature a vehicular demon of some sort, with the filmmakers hoping that this will follow in the tyre tracks of recent King success stories, IT and Gerald’s Game.
