News out of Cannes reveals that The Reach is the latest Stephen King story to get a film adaptation. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Park Entertainment will be developing the film in the $12 -$14 million budget range and is currently looking for a director.

The short story was first published in 1981 as "Do the Dead Sing?" and is became more well known after it appeared in Stephen King's horror collection Skeleton Crew in 1985, which also included stories such as The Mist, Survivor Type, and The Raft. The Reach follows Stella Flanders, the oldest person on Goat Island. She begins seeing dead residents of the island and decides to cross the reach, the body of water that separates the island from the mainland.

This is an early announcement, so there are no additional details at this time. We'll keep an eye out for more information and will let readers know when anything new is revealed. This is one of multiple Stephen King projects in development by various companies. A Carrie remake will be the first project to see the light of day, and other projects in development include a film adaptation of The Dark Tower, The Stand, and 11/22/63.
