Hollywood can’t get enough of Stephen King’s novels at the moment, with Ben Affleck (The Town) developing The Stand and John Cusack attached to star in Cell, another King adaptation. The love affair is set to continue and according to THR, Chandler Riggs (The Walking Dead) and Joel Courtney (Super 8) are set to star in the adaptation of Stephen King tale Mercy.
Mercy is based on the short story Gramma, written by King for his 1985 anthology Skeleton Crew, and centres around two brothers (Riggs and Courtney) who go with their mother to take care of their grandma. It transpires that their grandmother is a witch, who made an evil deal using black magic years earlier. Frances O'Connor (The Importance of Being Earnest) is also set to star as the mother.
