EXCLUSIVE: The Strangers: Prey At Night Director Interested In Christine Remake

EXCLUSIVE: We currently live in a bit of a resurgence era of Stephen King. From shows like 11.22.63 and Castle Rock to films like IT and Gerald’s Game, it feels like every couple months there’s a Stephen King adaptation or remake just around the corner. And why not? The dude is prolific as hell and has more stories in publication than almost any other mainstream author out there.

However, there is one beloved film and book out there that could be due for a remake, and it’s one not a lot of people are looking at seriously right now. I’m talking about Christine, which tells the ridiculous story of possessed 1958 Plymouth Fury. The film was adapted over 30 years ago back in 1983 by John Carpenter, and speaking about his work on The Strangers: Prey at Night, director Johanne Roberts delved deep into the inspirations from that movie that bled into the film.

But from the sound of it, he’s not just interested in throwing in clever nods in his own film. When asked by our own Gig Patta if he was pursuing the project, he said:

“I go into Sony every week, under the pretense of doing something else. Like, ‘Oh yeah, you got this news…so about Christine…’ Yeah, I don’t know what’s happening with that. I’ll get it one day.”

Of course, the first half of that quote was said in jest. We’re sure he goes in with plenty of enthusiasm for other projects, but all the same, it does sound like he’s slowly feeling out interest for Christine, in hopes of one day adapting it to the big screen once again.

But do we need another Christine film? Of all the books in King’s catalog, could this be on to truly benefit from getting made again with modern technology and filmmaking savvy? What do you think? Let us know your thoughts down below!
