Just in time for the 25th anniversary of Poltergeist comes word that its director, Tobe Hooper, is plotting a horrorific return to theaters.

Variety reports that Hooper is attached to direct the feature adaptation of Stephen King‘s From a Buick 8, from a script written by Johnathon Schaech and Richard Chizmar. The film is being co-produced by Moonstone Entertainment and Amicus Entertainment. From the article:

“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.

“From a Buick 8” will not be “your stock horror film by any means. There’s a really cool, layered quality to the story,” Hooper said. “The producers, writers and I shared the same sensibility about the project and responded to it in a similar way.”

Buick isn’t one of King’s more…distinguished late-period works, but Hooper knows how to scare people, and it’s been awhile since we’ve seen him do it on the big screen. Maybe this will be the project to bring him back.
