The original film told the story of a teenager who gains confidence after buying a 1958 Plymouth Fury, only to discover the car has a mind of its own and a murderous instinct.

Fuller's remake, which will reportedly keep the film set in its original '80s time period, is being produced by Blumhouse.

King, meanwhile, recently debuted his new Apple TV+ series, "Lisey's Story", starring Julianne Moore, which he adapted himself from his 2006 novel.
