Stephen King’s 2002 novel, “From A Buick 8,” will be brought to life by producer Courtney Lauren Penn and Renegade Entertainment, per a report from Deadline.
The report reads, “Renegade, which will develop and produce film, TV, games and immersive content, is partnering with King to adapt and produce his 2002 thriller novel about a car which is a door to another dimension.”
Here’s a brief description of the novel’s plot:
“From A Buick 8 centers around the rural town of Statler, Pennsylvania where the state police have kept a mysterious 1954 Buick Roadmaster in the shed behind the barracks for over twenty years. When the town is plagued by strange and supernatural events, it turns out the Buick isn’t what it seems to be.”
The film will also be produced by actor Thomas Jane, previously featured in three past King adaptations (1922, The Mist, and Dreamcatcher), who had this to say:
“From a Buick 8 is a thrilling and deeply personal project for us,” said Jane and Penn, “as we explore a uniquely structured mystery spanning the 70s, 80s, 90s and post-9/11 era, centered around a son’s search for the truth behind his father’s sudden death.
“Along with first love and grief, terrifying and philosophic mysteries are spawned by inexplicable events connected to the titular car. We are honored that Stephen is supporting our vision of his brilliant, provocative novel.”
