‘Oculus’ Director Adapting Stephen King’s ‘Gerald’s Game’

OCULUS

Next up for Oculus and Somnia director Mike Flanagan, pictured, is Gerald’s Game, based on the bestselling novel by Stephen King, reports Deadline.

“Gerald’s Game revolves around a seemingly harmless contest between a married couple in a remote retreat. It escalates to become a harrowing fight for survival, wife Jessie must confront long-buried demons within her own mind — and possibly lurking in the shadows of her seemingly empty house.

Flanagan wrote the script with his writing partner Jeff Howard. Trevor Macy and his Intrepid Pictures banner will produce, as he also did on Flanagan’s two horror films.

    I’m so stoked for this. When I first read this book I thought that they couldn’t make a movie out of it. I hope it turns out good

      I was just about to type the same thing actually. Definitely gotta go for more of a psychological horror approach.
