Here is a nice long review of the Special Edition DVD of Christine. Speaking of our favorite haunted car, Disturbia co-writer Christopher Landon may be involved in a remake of the movie. “[Christine] has been all over the place,” he told Coming Soon. Apparently this was going to be a SciFi original or a movie for NBC. “If it happens or not we’ll see, but when I came in what I wanted to do was really go back to the book, the source material. I’m a fan of the Carpenter version, it is fun. But the book was much more of a possession story than it was just a killer car. That’s what made the book so great is that what was so terrifying was that it wasn’t just about an inanimate object running around and killing people, it was a boy who was sorta being taken over by the former owner of the car – and there was something more terrifying about that. Also, I just love the dynamics of the characters and so forth. Right now it’s way too soon say anything else about it. We’re so in the thick of deal-making, I don’t want to blow anything else!”
The paperback edition of Blaze will be released on December 26, 2007. The cover art for the hardcover, due out in June, appears here. Yes, that’s a red mitten you see underneath the E in the title.
A while back I mentioned that Michael Marshall (Smith) would be adapting a King story for a UK TV series. At World Horror in Toronto last weekend he said that the story is “Mrs. Todd’s Shortcut.”
