Entertainment Bryan Fuller to Direct 'Christine' Remake Based on Stephen King Book for Sony and Blumhouse
Why Sony's Streaming Deals With Netflix AND Disney Make Sense for Everyone
"Windowing has been completely turned upside down," one veteran streaming executive says While entertainment industry watchers were quick to expound on the reasons why Sony Pictures Entertainment's recently announced U.S. movie licensing deal with Disney is a win for Sony, it's also a win for Disney. And for Netflix, which in early April had announced a massive movie pact with Sony that gave the streamer the so-called "Pay-1" window that grantsDisney has access to Sony's 2022-2026 theatrical movie slate following Netflix's exclusive window. Pay-1 windows typically last for 18 months, which begs the question of why an entertainment behemoth like Disney would be willing to play second banana to Netflix.
A new version of Stephen King's "Christine" is coming to the screen and in development with Bryan Fuller set to direct the film at Sony Pictures and for Blumhouse Productions.
"Christine" was first adapted into a cult horror film by horror master John Carpenter in 1983 about a teen who buys a classic 1958 Plymouth Fury and fixes it up, only to discover that it seems to have a mind of its own , a jealous, possessive personality toward its new owner and a vindictive, murderous past.
Fuller, who is a writer on "Star Trek: Discovery," "Pushing Daisies," "American Gods," "Hannibal" and more, is both writing and directing the new take on "Christine." Jason Blum is producing for Blumhouse, and Vincenzo Natali and Steven Hoban are also producing.
