Legendary Pictures has attached “Queen of Earth” helmer Alex Ross Perry to write and direct a film adaptation of Stephen King’s short story “Rest Stop”.
The propulsive cat and mouse thriller follows the twisted journey of two women after a fateful encounter at a highway rest stop. King’s short story won the National Magazine Award for Fiction in 2004 and was later included in his 2008 collection “Just After Sunset”.
Craig Flores (“300”) is producing. King adaptations are once again all the rage with one now in cinemas and at least three more due for release this year.
