‘Another Stephen King adaptation is coming our way with The Conjuring‘s James Wan and It producer Roy Lee teaming up to pitch a new adaptation of King’s 1987 novel The Tommyknockers to various studios and streaming services.
They’ve formed a group with Larry Sanitsky, who previously brought the story to the world via TV in 1993. The story follows a town in Maine that falls under the influence of a dangerous gas from an unearthed spacecraft. The gas begins to transform the people, giving them enhanced abilities, but also making them violent and subject to an alien hive mentality. One man, thanks to a steel plate in his head, is immune to the effects and tries to stop his fellow townsfolk.’
