The 1983 film adaptation of Stephen King’s horror novel Christine is getting a remodel. Deadline is reporting that Bryan Fuller is set to write and direct a reboot of the horror flick for Sony Pictures and Blumhouse.
Originally directed by horror icon John Carpenter in the 80s, Christine follows Arnie Cunningham, a shy and nerdy teen who decides to buy and restore a ’58 Plymouth Fury named Christine. But Christine isn’t just your average vintage car. Soon, its true and sinister nature is revealed, and Arnie begins to change with it.
Fuller is no stranger to sci-fi and horror projects. He created the beloved psychological thriller/horror TV series Hannibal, on which he also served as a writer and executive producer. He’s also written and executive produced shows such as American Gods, Star Trek: Discovery, Heroes, and more.
While details remain scant on the direction this version of Christine will take, there’s no doubt Fuller will bring his own unique flair to the project.
