So, with a successful fourth zombie project behind him, George Romero can now start getting his own way, as it's been confirmed that his favourite project, an adaptation of Stephen King's From a Buick 8 is officially underway for Chesapeake Films. The pair first worked together on Creepshow and have remained firm friends ever since, with George adapting the fairly successful The Dark Half in 1993.
Although not officially a horror novel (more a character study and a sci-fi book about a strange car), we're certainly looking forward to the mental mind-melt of two of horror's greatest legends back together again at last - King and Romero.
The script was written by Chesapeake principals Johnathon Schaech and Richard Chizmar.
The book’s plot revolves around a group of Pennsylvania State Patrol Troopers who find a vintage car, but they soon discover that the Buick automobile can open gateways to other dimensions that contain some horrific creatures.
