In an exclusive report by The Hollywood Reporter, James Wan and Roy Lee (the producer of It, Bates Motel) are poised to remake Stephen King’s The Tommyknockers. Wan and Lee are also joined by Larry Sanitsky, who executive produced the original 1993 TV miniseries adaptation of The Tommyknockers.
Sanitsky described the story as “…an allegorical tale of addiction (Stephen was struggling with his own at the time), the threat of nuclear power, the danger of mass hysteria and the absurdity of technical evolution run amuck. All are as relevant today as the day the novel was written. It is also a tale about the eternal power of love and the grace of redemption.”
