Stephen King's 'Christine' getting the remake treatment from Blumhouse

The 1983 original was directed by John Carpenter about a shy teen who comes out of his shell after he buys a ’58 Plymouth Fury to fix up. The car has a mind of its own, as well as a murderous past, and begins to change the young man and everyone around him in most dangerous fashion.

Fuller has a solid sci-fi pedigree as a writer and producer of the series “Star Trek: Discovery,” “American Gods,” “Hannibal,” “Heroes” and others. Fuller is getting under the hood with the intention is to keep it in an ’80s time period and grounded in King’s bestseller. It’s a good time for the author, who’s getting strong reviews for the Apple TV+ limited series “Lisey’s Story” which King adapted from his novel.

Peter Kang is overseeing for Sony Pictures. Fuller is repped by WME, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Ziffren Brittenham; King is repped by Paradigm.
