A Film Adaptation For Stephen King’s Mile 81 Is In The Works

Another Stephen King story will be making its way to a screen near you.

The author’s 2011 novella Mile 81 will be adapted into a film with director Alistair Legrand (Clinical) attached to the project. The adaptation is being produced by Ross M. Dinerstein, the producer behind Netflix’s King adaptation 1922 and the John Grisham docuseries The Innocent Man. The screenplay is currently being penned by Legrand and Luke Harvis, who also wrote Clinial and The Diabolical with Legrand.

Reported early Friday morning, Deadline gave a quick synopsis of the King novella:

Set around a remote, boarded-up rest stop, the film will follow 12-year-old Pete, his brother, and a group of strangers who must fight to survive as they’re hunted by a mysterious force.

Legrand and Harvis have an experienced history in the horror genre with their previous works. Producer Dinerstein’s involvement most likely solidifies that this will be another addition to Netflix’s ever expanding library of content. Similar to it’s increase in stand-up comedy specials and true crime documentaries, the horror/thriller genre has received numerous additions thanks to the streaming service. Alongside Stranger ThingsBlack Mirror, and The Haunting Of Hill House, Netflix’s recent adaptations of King’s classic works have only enhanced a diverse network of chilling tales for those in the mood for a scare or two.

No release date has been set for Mile 81.
