If you read this site then there’s a good chance you like Stephen King and will be glad to know that A Good Marriage will be making its way to screens sometime next year. The original story comes from King’s “Full Dark, No Stars” compendium and Peter Askin (Trumbo) has been hired to direct.
Per Screen Daily, “Atlas International has added Stephen King adaptation ‘A Good Marriage’ to its Cannes slate.
Peter Askin will direct the psychological thriller based on a short story from King’s book Full Dark – No Stars, winner of the 2010 Bram Stoker Award for Best Collection. Will Battersby produces.”
In the book, “When her husband of more than twenty years is away on one of his business trips, Darcy Anderson looks for batteries in the garage. Her toe knocks up against a box under a worktable, and she discovers the stranger inside her husband. It’s a horrifying discovery, rendered with bristling intensity, and it definitively ends a good marriage.”
The project is casting. Have any of you guys read this story? How is it and who do you think should be in it?
