Greg Nicotero, the special effects wizard who co-founded KNB and whose work can be seen from current films like PIRAHNA 3D PREDATORS and classics like EVIL DEAD 2 and BRIDE OF RE-ANIMATOR will be making his feature length directorial debut with the film adaptation of THE DRIVE IN.
The Drive In is a novel written by Joe R Lansdale, which has already been adapted into comic book form by Avatar Press, that focuses on a group of friends who decide to spend a day at the world's largest Drive-In theater horror fest. They expect to see tons of bloody murders, rampaging madmen, and mayhem on the screen, but when a mysterious force traps all the patrons inside the Drive-In, the worst in humanity comes out.
No telling when the film will finally see the light of day, but just knowing that Nicotero is involved makes me giddy with anticipation.
