It's been a bit of a wait, but the teaser trailer for the Lifetime adaption of Stephen King's short "Big Driver," from his book, Full Dark, No Stars, is finally making its way around the net! And while disappointingly brief, there is no question that this movie is going to serve up the scares, Master of Horror style!
Starring a personal favorite of mine, Maria Bello, in the lead role, Big Driver follows mystery writer Tess Thorne on her quest for revenge after she is violently assaulted, brutalized, and left for dead on the side of the road by a serial killer after a car mishap. The film also stars Will Harris, Olympia Dukakis, and Joan Jett (YEAH Joan Jett!), and premieres on Lifetime Saturday, October 18... So just in time for some early Halloween fun!
Big Driver isn't the only King adaptation making its way to screens: Cell is currently in post-production (starring Samuel L. Jackson), a version of King's short Gramma has been adapted by Blumhouse into a film called Mercy, and re-make of television miniseries IT is currently in the works.
