King and Romero Together Again

Well, it looks as if George A. Romero's quiet spell is over, and he's once again becoming known for working on Stephen King projects. GOREZONE cites him as the director for "From a Buick 8," and the IMDb shows him to be at the helm of "The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon" as well.

A cursory trip down memory lane brings to mind Romero's success at directing "Creepshow" in the '80s and the keenly executed "Dark Half" about a decade later. If "Buick" and "Gordon" mark a return to that level of performance, we're no doubt in for quite a ride. Hard to say how long we'll be waiting, however. The release year of 2005 that the IMDb shows for "Gordon" is looking more and more optimistic with each turning leaf, and there's nary a mention of the "Buick" adapatation yet.

Nothing at all against the ever-swelling body of work that Mick Garris is amassing under the Stephen King banner, but it's nice to see another strong director take the reins for a couple of laps around the track.--Pete Mesling
