Horror’s James Wan and Larry Sanitsky are teaming up for the film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Tommyknockers, the second best-selling book by the master of horror.
Universal Pictures recently won the bidding war with Netflix, and Sony for the rights to the film, according to THR.
While no writer or director has been named we do know that Wan (The Conjuring) will produce under his banner Atomic Monster, along with Roy Lee (IT) from Vertigo and Larry Sanitsky who served as executive producer for the original 1993 TV miniseries.
King’s novel, published in 1987, follows writer Bobbi Anderson who becomes obsessed with digging up something she has found buried in the woods near her home. With the help of her friend Jim, she uncovers a spacecraft. Exposure to the Tommyknockers who piloted the craft has a detrimental effect on residents of Haven’s health but gives them a talent for inventing devices under its increasingly malignant influence.
