The West Wing and ER star Mary McCormack has been added to the cast of the latest (and about the 1000th) Stephen King movie adaptation 1408. She joins an already strong looking cast of Samuel L. Jackson and John Cusack for director Mikael Hafstrom who directed the little seen movie Derailed last year.
Here is a synopsis of the movie from Filmstalker…
“1408 follows a supernatural writer, played by Cusak, who checks into the notorious room 1408 at the Dolphin Hotel. He does so hoping to prove that mysterious goings on there are just a coincidence, but gets more that he bargained for”.
I don’t get to read many books these days but when I do it tends to be King’s books I end up reading and they never let me down. However I can’t say the same for the film adaptations. For every Shawshank Redemption and The Shining, there is a Dreamcatcher and Secret Window also.
