"jonathan sh" Discussed on The Stephen King Boo! Club

"So there's been an adaptation of from a buick eight in the works for a while. Now it's very much stuck in development. Hell here's a brief rundown of the rumor mill in two thousand and five. Jorge romero was slated to direct and adaptation written by jonathan sh h and richard chizmar in two thousand and seven romera was replaced by tobe hooper. i don't know i don't do. My research. production stalled in two thousand and nine due to budgeting issues more. Recently thomas jane of the two thousand and seven missed adaptation announced a new effort entirely at adapting buick. Eight which as of august twenty twenty has tapped. Jim mackel to direct. This is not potentially great news as everything that mac will has ever directed has scored under ninety percent on rotten tomatoes his most recent being the shadow of the moon which scored a pretty dismal. Forty eight on metacritic and fifty nine percent on rotten tomatoes. Could this be the product. Turn it all around. Time will tell chris what do you think. What would you like to see a buick eight adaptation. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say i would not like to see an adaptation of this at all. oh okay. I think that as a narrative it works as a book But i don't think that the idea of having this be an open ended mystery that is never explained would work as well as an infant. Yeah i mean the closest we've gotten to that in popular culture is the inception ending which made popular cultural Just insufferable for like a decade. So what's avoid that. Yeah and to with the inception endings. They're still a satisfying narrative. Clothes run in that. Leonardo dicaprio's character. It didn't matter to him whether he was in the real world or not. That's the whole point of him leaving behind the top. He doesn't care anymore but there is no satisfaction. And that's the point in. Yeah yeah and i feel like a lot of general audiences would not connect with that well. I've vibe with that. I was thinking it would be one of those movies that i think that in a lot of ways stephen king's adaptations are going to be a little bit higher quality just in from the production standpoint because of recent developments in special effects. You know i could see this being a really beautiful adaptation if done in the style of kind of it part one where you have like a lot of these kind of environmental shots you get you get a sense for this small community now that being said i do you kind of convinced me so i'd like to pitch a different adaptation so we can end the segment on a high note. Sure i think that this would make an excellent comic series all my god. Yeah with the right artist that would be yeah kind of in the style of old school horror comics because it has some of that camp written into it already with the concept. And i think that you could do some really some really good work. Visualizing some of these segments especially you know all of these dissection elements all of the stuff around characters like freaking out. Yeah i would if. I had to pick an artist for that. I would pick kevin o'neill who did what is kevin o'neill work done league of extraordinary gentlemen how he worked on that with alan moore. And he's done. A lot of love crafting esque monsters. very good monster design excellent. See here's i'm of two minds about this. The more i think about it on one hand. I would be afraid that an adaptation of this would try to give a satisfying explanation for the buick which it does not need but then again something like fourteen. Eight was not a one adaptation but was still really good. I'm always afraid though that we're going to end up with one too. Many not great adaptations. And it's going to end the stephen king renaissance that we're in right now. If the stephen king adaptations could survive maximum overdrive. They can survive anything. You know what that is an optimistic take to the segment on. Let's bring it over in honor of your show chris. this is a new segment. We are using to replace battle. The books were calling it. The stephen king fight club. So this is where we talk about how we would fight this monster or this this evil presence or or whatever. It is week by week because it would not be fair of me. Chris to ask you whether this was better than the tar tower would not be right. So you're an expert on fighting monsters. How would you go about this. Honestly i would do pretty much with the guys in the book did. Maybe i would keep it in a little. Bit more of an isolated area so people wouldn't be drawn to it but the monsters and plants and everything that comes out does not mesh well with our world so they pretty much die upon contact with our air in a matter of minutes right so if you keep it in one again. This is one of the things. I actually really appreciate about. This book is that they approached the problem in a very clinical way and in a very smart way. They had ropes around. They had people watching the car. When the light quake started. go off. They'd have at least two people on guard just in case something new popped out and people were always cautious. And they weren't glib and flippant with the whole with the car itself. Yeah i by that. I think it's hard because you know. Stephen king for as much as people rag on his endings. I think this one had a decent one. And i i almost this is a personal problem. I just wish that they hadn't come up with the right answer. You know what i mean like. They understood jess enough about this car that we get to see it starting to age. If that's.
