THR is reporting that 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 story was released as an e-book back in March and was specifically written for his fans in Germany and France because they were so hospitable to him when he visited in November. How cool is that?

Bouzereau will direct the adaptation which is fitting because he was the man behind the 2011 film A NIGHT AT THE MOVIES: THE HORRORS OF STEPHEN KING, which featured King discussing horror films and their popularity with moviegoers.

Here's what it's about:

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.

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 an adaptation of his book MERCY. King is repped by Paradigm.

They always forget the best one

It always surprises me when people listing King's movie adaptions fail to mention the best one... The Shawshank Redemption.

Can't wait for another King adaption. They tend to swing wildly in quality, but it's always fun to watch stories you've read.
