Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
It has been thirty years since the world received Stephen King’s Novel titled THE TOMMYKNOCKERS. It looks like this popular title could be getting a new adaptation.
THR reports that filmmaker James Wan and producer Roy Lee have plans to produce a new adaptation for the screen via their respective labels Atomic Monster and Vertigo Entertainment. This would mark the second time that the story would be adapted, which tells the tale of an object that crashes down to Earth from outer space thus changing a small town in the process.
Wan and Lee have teamed up with producer Larry Sanitsky, who executive produced the 1993 ABC miniseries and is the current holder to the screen rights to THE TOMMYKNOCKERS Novel.
"It is an allegorical tale of addiction (Stephen was struggling with his own at the time), the threat of nuclear power, the danger of mass hysteria and the absurdity of technical evolution run amuck. All are as relevant today as the day the novel was written. It is also a tale about the eternal power of love and the grace of redemption."
"On a beautiful June day, while walking deep in the woods on her property in Haven, Maine, Bobbi Anderson quite literally stumbles over her own destiny and that of the entire town. For the dull gray metal protrusion she discovers in the ground is part of a mysterious and massive metal object, one that may have been buried there for millennia. Bobbi can’t help but become obsessed and try to dig it out…the consequences of which will affect and transmute every citizen of Haven, young and old. It means unleashing extraordinary powers beyond those of mere mortals—and certain death for any and all outsiders. An alien hell has now invaded this small New England town…an aggressive and violent malignancy devoid of any mercy or sanity…"
There has been no deal made as of yet, so nothing is official, but the efforts are being made and this project could end up seeing the light of day with the way things are looking.
