Lifetime takes Big Driver to King’s novella

Lifetime has partnered with author Stephen King for a new TV movie.



Big Driver, starring Maria Bello, Olympia Dukakis, Joan Jett and Will Harris, tells the story of a young novelist hell bent on revenge after the core of her psyche is broken following a brutal crime.

The story was first published by King as a novella, and the telemovie represents Lifetime’s first collaboration with the author.

The film will be produced by Ostar Producitons and executive produced by Bill Haber and Jeffrey Hayes. It is written by Richard Christian Matheson.

Production will begin in Halifax, Nova Scotia, this summer.

    I would really like to know the artist and song which was playing in the first few minutes of the movie “Big Driver” when the lead character was driving. I have looked in all kinds of lyric websites and cannot find it. I would really appreciate it if you could provide this information to me. Thanks much.
