I was having healthy beverages with FX King GREG NICOTERO (of KNB) last night at FANTASTIC FEST and after I spiked his drink, he revealed to me that he has been attached to direct the feature film version of Joe R. Lansdale's classic genre book THE DRIVE IN. Although Nicotero just cut his teeth on his short flick UNITED MONSTER TALENT AGENCY, this will be his feature lenght directorial debut. They are now in the process of setting up the picture.
THE DRIVE IN is about: When a group of friends decided to spend a day at the world's largest Drive-In theater horror fest, they expected to see tons of bloody murders, rampaging madmen, and mayhem - but only on the screen. As a mysterious force traps all the patrons inside the Drive-In, the worst in humanity comes out.
Sounds like a blast to me! More news when we get some!
