“From a Buick 8″ centers on a mysterious Buick stored in a state trooper barracks. After one of the troopers dies, his son becomes obsessed with the mysterious vintage automobile.

Screenplay for the pic has been penned by actor-writer Johnathon Schaech and Richard Chizmar, after Moonstone Entertainment chairman-CEO Etchie Stroh and Amicus Entertainment prexy Robert Katz got the rights.

Stroh and Katz will produce the film under their partnership, reports Variety.

Also in the producers bandwagon are Schaech and Chizmar, through their Chesapeake Films banner, and frequent King collaborator Mick Garris.

Hooper, who directed the original “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” has most recently directed episodes of Showtime’s “Masters of Horror” and the miniseries “Ghosts” for Lionsgate. (ANI)
