Samuel L. Jackson in a new King movie?Posted: July 3, 2008, 00:37:08
In an interview with Cemetery Dance Richard Chizmar and Johnathon Schaech revealed the following:
CEMETERY DANCE: You're also involved in several Stephen King projects. Can you update us on their progress?
CHIZMAR/SCHAECH: We have been working on FROM A BUICK 8 for so long and are finally so close to a "go" that we are afraid to talk too much about it and jinx it. What we can say is that we are currently working on one final rewrite for director Tobe Hooper and producer Mick Garris and the good folks at Amicus (producers of the recent STUCK and forthcoming IT'S ALIVE remake). Once the rewrite is completed, they are prepared to go right into pre-production with plans to film on the East Coast.
We also adapted BLACK HOUSE for Akiva Goldsman (A BEAUTIFUL MIND, I AM LEGEND, CINDARELLA MAN) and his Weed Road production company. As opposed to BUICK, where we are writers and producers, we are only writers on BLACK HOUSE, so we are just along for the ride. Hopefully, something will happen soon.
Finally, there is a third King adaptation we are working on with Samuel L. Jackson...but we can't say much about this for another couple months.
