Cusack Checks In to King's "1408"
"John Cusack will star in the bigscreen adaptation of Stephen King's short story "1408" for helmer Mikael Hafstrom, producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and Dimension Films.
Penned by "The People vs. Larry Flynt" scribes Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, pic centers on a debunker of paranormal occurrences who encounters real terror when he checks into notorious Room 1408 at the Dolphin Hotel.
Pic will lense this summer. Location is yet to be determined.
"This film is so much a one-man show," Hafstrom told Daily Variety. "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."
Mr. Hafstrom's films include "Derailed" and "Ondskan." You know Scott & Larry from "Man on the Moon," "Problem Child," and "Ed Wood," among others.
