Throttle, the novella by Stephen King and his son, novelist Joe Hill, is getting the big-screen treatment.
Producer Emile Gladstone and his A Bigger Boat Productions have optioned the story and set John Scott III, the writer of the 2015 Arnold Schwarzenegger zombie movie Maggie, to pen the screenplay.
Taking its inspiration from the classic Richard Matheson short story Duel, Throttle tells of a motorcycle gang riding across a stark Nevada desert, after a deal gone bad, who become pursued by a faceless trucker hell-bent on revenge. The main thrust of the story is the relationship between a father and son.
The story was originally published in 2009 as part of a Matheson tribute.
