Tobe Hooper Still Attached To Stephen King’s FROM A BUICK 8!

According to a report on SHOCK, director Tobe Hooper (THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE. POLTERGEIST) is still set to helm the adaptation of Stephen King’s book FROM A BUICK 8. (Once attached to George A. Romero, who instead begins production on DIARY OF THE DEAD 2 this September.) Actor Johnathon Schaech (PROM NIGHT) and Richard Chizmar (writer on Stuart Gordon’s FEAR ITSELF episode "EATER") have written the script, which according to the SHOCK article is being submitted next week. In the story, a mysterious Buick held in a state trooper barracks has become the fixation of a deceased police officer’s son. Mick Garris (THE STAND, MASTERS OF HORROR) is producing. More when we hear it!

    Damn cokehead Hooper! This is an excellent book and with George Romero, it would have been a spectacular film. But instead of Romero, we get this talentless junkie who has made one film in his entire life – the original TCM – and then continued puking and calling each puke puddle a film. And this time there will be no Spielberg on the set to save his ass by directing the movie with no credit, as was the case with Poltergeist!
