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., reports Heat Vision.
“The supernatural story 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 the story 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, wrote and directed the 2011 film A Night at the Movies: The Horrors of Stephen King, which featured King discussing horror films and their popularity with moviegoers.
