With the tremendous success of the latest Stephen King adaptation, IT, it is no surprise that another adaptation is in line. Bread & Circuses Entertainment, Voltage Pictures and Das films are teaming to adapt King’s short story Suffer the Little Children.

The story is one of King’s earliest works, and centers on an elderly teacher who slowly and tragically comes to the realization that her students are not quite what they seem.

Confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter, Sean Carter will write and direct the adaptation. He will expand the story while also building on the alien qualities rooted in the story’s original foundation.
