George Romero will helm an adaptation of the Stephen King novel "From a Buick 8" for Chesapeake Films
Chesapeake Films is about to out two new film projects. The first one is "From a Buick 8," which is an adaptation of the Stephen King's novel of the same title that George Romero will helm.
"From a Buick 8" is a thriller tells 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.
The second film also is a thriller and called "The Poker Club." Based on the suspense thriller by crime scribe Ed Gorman, the film centers on four buddies who discover and accidentally kill a burglar, who may not be alone, in the kitchen during their weekly poker night. Their lives and the lives of their families are forever changed by the difficult choices they must make.
Chesapeake Films reportedly has tapped Tim McCann to direct the latter flick, with Chesapeake principals Johnathon Schaech and Richard Chizmar wrote both scripts.
