Sometimes projects can go from company to company over the years before they finally find a home that follows through and produces the intellectual property. That has definitely been the case with Stephen King’s “From a Buick 8”
The film is going to be coming to us with actor Thomas Jane and producer Courtney Lauren-Penn who are teaming up to for the LA-based content company, Renegade Entertainment. They are partnering with King to adapt and produce the novel.
For those unfamiliar with the novel;
“‘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.”
Penn and Jane had this to say about the project:
“’ From a Buick 8′ is a thrilling and deeply personal project for us, 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.”
No release date has been given for the upcoming King adaptation.
