The Stephen King renaissance is in full swing. And we couldn’t be happier.
Hot on the heels of IT shattering box office records, Deadline reports today Stephen King’s short story Suffer the Little Children is next on deck to receive a feature film adaptation!
Sean Carter (Keep Watching) will direct the film.
First published in 1972, Suffer the Little Children is “a supernatural thriller that centers on a recently divorced first-grade schoolteacher who notices some “unsettling” traits in the children in her class: flashes of a bizarre texture lurking underneath their skin and a chilling, conspiratorial secrecy to the way they play together. And now, people in her new town are dying mysteriously. Is this all just paranoia, or is something more disturbing happening to the children in this town?”
Craig Flores, Nicolas Chartier and Sriram Das are producing.
