Stephen King e-book turns movie

The Stephen King e-book "Bullet" – released in 2000 strictly in an electronic format – has been set up by Motion Picture Corporation of America and casting for the pic is under way, with a tentative May start for lensing. Mick Garris (TV’s "The Shining") will write and direct. Variety says "Bullet" tells the story of a suicidal college kid trying to hitchhike across Maine to see his ailing mother. A series of bizarre rides and misfortunes culminates in the teen being picked up by a menacing stranger — a spectral figure who offers a final lift, a terrible ultimatum and a new perspective on life.
