Cusack Checks Into Stephen King's 1408
March 9, 2006
John Cusack will star in the big screen adaptation of Stephen King's short story 1408 for director Mikael Hafstrom (Derailed), producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Dimension Films, says Variety.
Written by The People vs. Larry Flynt screenwriters Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, the film centers on a debunker of paranormal occurrences who encounters real terror when he checks into notorious Room 1408 at the Dolphin Hotel.
The project will film this summer with a location yet to be determined.
"This film is so much a one-man show," Hafstrom told the trade. "It's quite a contained drama. It is a horror film if you want to put a label on it, but the way I see it, it's much more an inner-journey of this character."
