Netflix has just announced an October 20, 2017, release for 1922, an adaptation of Stephen King’s novella that follows the events after a man kills his wife.
Thomas Jane (The Punisher, The Mist) and Molly Parker (The 9th Life of Louis Drax, The Road) stars in the adaptation with Dylan Schmid, Kaitlyn Bernard, Brian D’Arcy James and Neal McDonough.
“1922 is based on Stephen King’s 131-page storytelling of a man’s confession of his wife’s murder. The tale is told from the perspective of Wilfred James, the story’s unreliable narrator who admits to killing his wife, Arlette, with his son in Nebraska. But after he buries her body, he finds himself terrorized by rats and, as his life begins to unravel, becomes convinced his wife is haunting him.”
1922 was directed by Zak Hilditch (These Final Hours), who also adapted the novella. Ross M. Dinerstein produced.
Netflix will also release Mike Flanagan’s adaptation of Gerald’s Game this fall, while David Fincher’s “Mindhunter” premieres on October 13th with “Strangers Things” Season 2 premiering on October 27th. Netflix also just announced Little Evil for September 1st.
