Stephen King's latest short story isn't even two months old and Hollywood is ready to make it into a movie. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story Bad Little Kid has been optioned for a feature film by Laurent Bouzereau and his production company Nedland Media Inc.
The story focuses on a man "whose life changes forever when he realizes that a mysterious boy is causing the deaths of people he loves." It was released as an e-story in Germany and France on March 14. King said he wrote it for his fans in the European countries who were kind to him when he visited last November.
Bouzereau also plans on directing. He's previously worked on making-of documentaries, including 2011's TCM presentation A Night at the Movies: The Horrors of Stephen King, which he wrote and directed. The special features Stephen King talking about the popularity of horror movies. Bouzereau has also directed Roman Polanski: A Film Memoir and Don't Say No Until I Finish Talking: The Story of Richard D. Zanuck (also wrote and produced).
Other King works in production include Cell (starring Samuel L. Jackson and John Cusack; in post-production), Mercy (produced by Blumhouse) and Gramma.
