Horror fans are going to love this news: Throttle, a short story by Stephen King and his son, Joe Hill (pen name, his real name is Joseph King), about a biker gang terrorized by a semi-truck in the middle of the American desert, is supposedly being turned into a movie.
According to a report by Deadline, the project is being developed by HBO Max with David Goyer (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight) and Keith Levine producing.
Throttle was first published back in 2009 as part of the He Is Legend anthology and was later adapted into a comic book series. Neither King is new to film adaptations. Stephen King, of course, is a horror movie nut staple with movies based on The Shining, Pet Sematary, and, most recently, the It remakes. Car nuts, though, will probably know him best for penning Christine. Joe Hill’s Horns, meanwhile, was turned into a movie starring Daniel Radcliffe in 2013.
That plot sounds pretty intense. Is this something you’d be interested in watching when (or if) it comes out? Let us know in the comments.
