Stephen King’s Western Horror-Thriller THE REGULATORS Is Getting a Film Adaptation

Stephen King's Western Horror-Thriller THE REGULATORS

Stephen King’s 1996 western horror-thriller novel The Regulators has been optioned by Bohemia Group,, and they will be adapting it into a feature film. They’ve hired George Cowan to bring it to the big screen and King has approved the script and says:

“I’m delighted that the excitement of The Regulators is coming to the screen. This is going to be good.”

The Regulators tells the story of “the peaceful suburban life on Poplar Street in Wentworth, Ohio that is shattered one fine day when four vans containing shotgun-wielding ‘regulators’ terrorize the street’s residents, cold-bloodedly killing anyone foolish enough to venture outdoors. Houses mysteriously transform into log cabins and the street now ends in what looks like a child’s hand-drawn western landscape. Masterminding this sudden onslaught is an evil creature who has taken over the body of an autistic boy whose parents were killed in a drive-by shooting several months earlier.”

This is a fascinating story from King. It’s been a long time since I’ve read the book. I don’t remember the details of the story, but I remember I loved it!

Bohemia Group’s CEO, Susan Ferris said in a statement: “We could not be more thrilled than to be working with the prolific Stephen King and his team on this project. The novel’s themes and characters resonate so powerfully, and we are looking forward to making an incredible film.”

Producer Justin Ross added: “Working with Stephen King is a long-time wish fulfilled. Susan and George and I look forward to doing the novel and its author proud.”
