Over the years several directors have been attached to direct adaptation of Stephen King‘s 2002 novel From a Buick 8, including George A Romero, Tobe Hooper, and William Brent Bell, but none of the films have come to fruition. But that may be changing.  Thomas Jane, who appears in three King adaptations (Dreamcatcher, The Mist, 1922) is now determined to adapt it for a feature film.

Jane teamed up last year with Courtney Lauren Penn to create Renegade Entertainment and they have From a Buick 8 in their headlights.

That’s not all, Jane recently revealed on The Kingcast podcast that Stake Land‘s Jim Mickle has now signed on to direct. We are assuming Jane will star.

The story “centers around the rural town of Statler, Pennsylvania where the state police have kept a mysterious 1954 Buick Roadmaster in the shed behind the barracks for over twenty years. When the town is plagued by strange and supernatural events, it turns out the Buick isn’t what it seems to be.”

Hopefully, we’ll know more soon.
