Posted by at 2:53 pm on May 15, 2018

Brainstorm Media has optioned the film rights to Stephen King’s novella The Gingerbread Girl.

Set in a secluded house on the loneliest stretch of New England, the story follows a woman who takes up running as a way to deal with the loss of her only daughter, Amy, having suffered crib death.

Channelling her grief into a gruelling running regimen, and avoiding contact with her husband and her father, she seems to be on the path to recovery until she makes the mistake of looking into the driveway of a man named Pickering.

Craig R. Baxley, who helmed King mini-series adaptations Storm of the Century and Kingdom Hospital will direct the film from a screenplay written by both he and the author.

Lsat week, Netflix closed a deal for King and Joe Hill’s novella In the Tall Grass, while Castle Rock is slated to return to Hulu in July.
