Bad Little Kid In New Collection

Posted: June 26, 2014, 11:00
A lot of fans has been waiting for Bad Little Kid to be published in English. So far it’s only been released in German and French but now the moderator of King’s message board has confirmed that it will be included in the new collection out in the fall of 2015.

I don't know about Afterlife but have been able to confirm that because it will be a fall release, "Bad Little Kid" will be part of the new collection. There was an exclusive for the French and German publishers for that but it will expire in June 2015.


If I can find the other thread where this was asked, I'll post it there as well but some of you had asked about whether "Bad Little Kid" would be included. I've asked Steve and we've confirmed that the exclusive which France and Germany had will expire in June 2015 so it will be able to be included since the collection won't be out until the autumn of 2015. As of now, the plan is to include it.

Bad Little Kid To Be Filmed

Looks like King's latest short story, Bad Little Kid is about to be turned into a movie.

Stephen King's new short story, Bad Little Kid, has been optioned for a feature film by Laurent Bouzereau and his production company, Nedland Media Inc.

The supernatural tale centers on a man whose life changes forever when he realizes that a mysterious boy is causing the deaths of people he loves.

Bad Little Kid was released as an e-story in Germany and France on March 14. King says he wrote it specifically for his fans in those European countries who were so hospitable to him when he visited in November.

Bouzereau, who is also planning on directing Bad Little Kid, has a resume packed with making-of documentaries. He wrote and directed the 2011 TCM film A Night at the Movies: The Horrors of Stephen King, which featured King discussing horror films and their popularity with moviegoers. Bouzereau's other directing credits include Roman Polanski: A Film Memoir and Don't Say No Until I Finish Talking: The Story of Richard D. Zanuck, which he also wrote and produced. Bouzereau is represented by Resolution and Bloom Hergott.
