Tobe Hooper Directing BUICK 8Meh
A very long time ago when I first started this site we told you that George Romero was going to direct the film adaptation of Stephen Kings Buick 8. Well today comes word that Romero has been kicked off the project so that Tobe Hooper can helm it instead according to Empire Online. I suppose trading one legendary director for another is never a bad thing. Stephen King had been quoted as saying:
"I'm very excited that George is interested in directing 'From a Buick 8."
We will have to see what he thinks of Tobe Hooper taking over. From a Buick 8" is the story of a state trooper who is killed on the side of the road. The man's colleagues try to help his son cope, but when the boy discovers his father's dark secret in the barracks' back shed, things start to stir not only in the shed but in the hearts and minds of the veteran troopers who surround him.
