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.

Variety reports that the film is being penned by "The People vs. Larry Flynt" scribes Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, and centers on a debunker of paranormal occurrences who encounters real terror when he checks into notorious Room 1408 at the Dolphin Hotel.

The film will lense this summer. Location is yet to be determined.
