And the Stephen King adaptations just keep coming.
THR is reporting today that producer Emile Gladstone and his company A Bigger Boat Productions have optioned the novella Throttle, penned by father-son duo Stephen King and Joe Hill, for a feature film adaptation. They’ve hired the writer of surprisingly good Arnold Schwarzenegger zombie movie Maggie, John Scott III, to tackle the screenplay.
Published by Gauntlet Press back in 2009, Throttle was inspired by Richard Matheson’s Duel. The tale, originally published within an anthology of stories that paid tribute to Matheson’s work, “pits a faceless trucker against a tribe of motorcycle outlaws, in the simmering Nevada desert. Their battle is fought out on twenty miles of the most lonely road in the country, a place where the only thing worse than not knowing what you’re up against, is slowing down.”
Throttle was also released alongside Duel for the double feature audio CD “Road Rage.”
