Bryan Fuller is making the transition from the small screen to the big with a new film adaptation of Stephen King’s “Christine”.
The film, the second film adaptation of the classic novel after John Carpenter’s 1983 version, will retain the original ’80s setting.
According to Variety, Sony Pictures and Blumhouse are producing the film, which marks Fuller’s feature directorial debut. In addition to creating the cult TV series “Hannibal”, Fuller is also known for his work on “Heroes” and “Star Trek : Discovery”.
Here’s the official synopsis for the 1983 film :
