Stephen King’s ‘Christine’ Getting Big-Screen Reboot With Bryan Fuller Directing for Sony Pictures and Blumhouse

“Hannibal” and “Star Trek: Discovery” creator Bryan Fuller is attached to make his feature directing debut with an adaptation of the Stephen King novel “Christine,” which Fuller is developing with Sony Pictures.

King’s novel is set in the late 1970s, about a 17-year-old named Arnie who fixes up a 1958 Plymouth Fury that, naturally, is haunted by its previous, not-such-a-nice-guy owner, who named the car Christine.

This is Fuller’s first foray into features after three decades in television, including creating cult 2000s series “Wonderfalls” and “Pushing Daisies.” Fuller left his two most recent shows — “Discovery” and “American Gods” — after disagreements with their respective networks, CBS All Access and Starz.

In 1983, Columbia Pictures released a feature adaptation of “Christine” directed by John Carpenter, written by Bill Phillips, and starring Keith Gordon.
