The Stephen King adaptation
Texas Chainsaw Massacre director Tobe Hooper tells us a script for From a Buick 8, based on the Stephen King novel, is being turned in sometime next week, assuaging any thoughts that the project has fallen apart.
Actor Johnathon Schaech and Cemetery Dance publisher Richard Chizmar (who, in the past, have penned episodes of Masters of Horror and Fear Itself) are, as previously announced, on adaptation duties. In the story, a mysterious Buick held in a state trooper barracks has become the fixation of a deceased police officer’s son.
Mick Garris will produce. Hooper has attached to helm for well over a year.
