Jackson joins Cusack in King adaptation

Samuel L. Jackson has checked into “1408,” the Dimension Films adaptation of the Stephen King short story. Shooting begins in the summer.

Mikael Hafstrom (“Derailed”) will direct and John Cusack stars as a debunker of paranormal occurrences who encounters real terror when he checks into the notorious Room 1408 at the Dolphin Hotel. Matt Greenberg wrote the original script and Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski did the rewrite. Lorenzo di Bonaventura is producing.

The short story was originally published in the collection “Everything’s Eventual.”  

Jackson, who’ll next be seen starring in “Snakes on a Plane” and “Black Snake Moan,” will integrate the co-starring role into an already busy 2006 schedule. He’s currently in production on the Irwin Winkler-directed “Home of the Brave,” then joins Josh Hartnett in the Rod Lurie-helmed drama “Resurrecting the Champ.” He also narrated the Bob Saget-directed documentary spoof “Farce of the Penguins.”
