We reported back in March we told you that James Wan will be producing the upcoming new adaptation of Stephen King’s tale The Tommyknockers. Today, we have an update for you and it’s exciting!
Jeremy Slater, who served as showrunner for “The Exorcist” series, has joined the team and will be writing, according to Variety.
Wan will be producing along with Michael Clear, the same team who is behind The Nun. Roy Lee (IT) will executive produce along with Larry Sanitsky, who also executive produced the original 1993 mini-series’ (trailer below).
The story tells of, “a town in Maine that falls under the influence of a dangerous gas from an unearthed spacecraft. The gas begins to transform the people, giving them enhanced abilities, but also making them violent and subject to an alien hive mentality. One man, thanks to a steel plate in his head, is immune to the effects and tries to stop the townspeople.”
