Stephen King's new short story "Bad Little Kid" to get film treatment

Stephen King's new short story

PanARMENIAN.Net - Stephen King's new short story, Bad Little Kid, has been optioned for a feature film by Laurent Bouzereau and his production company, Nedland Media Inc., The Hollywood Reporter said in an exclusive report.

The supernatural tale centers on a man whose life changes forever when he realizes that a mysterious boy is causing the deaths of people he loves.

Bad Little Kid was released as an e-story in Germany and France on March 14. King says he wrote it specifically for his fans in those European countries who were so hospitable to him when he visited in November.

Bouzereau, who is also planning on directing Bad Little Kid, has a resume packed with making-of documentaries. He wrote and directed the 2011 TCM film A Night at the Movies: The Horrors of Stephen King, which featured King discussing horror films and their popularity with moviegoers. Bouzereau's other directing credits include Roman Polanski: A Film Memoir and Don't Say No Until I Finish Talking: The Story of Richard D. Zanuck, which he also wrote and produced. Bouzereau is represented by Resolution and Bloom Hergott.

More than 50 of Kings' books and short stories have been adapted into films over the years, including The Shining, Carrie and The Green Mile. An adaptation of the apocalyptic thriller Cell starring Samuel L. Jackson is currently in postproduction, and Blumhouse produced a film called Mercy, an adaptation of King's short story Gramma.
