A project we first reported on a few months back is gaining some traction. A Good Marriage, which originally appeared in the Stephen King anthology “Full Dark, No Stars”, will be making its way to screens sometime next year with Peter Askin (Trumbo) directing. And now the film has its lead – Joan Allen (Pleasantville, Manhunter, The Bourne Supremacy) will be playing Darcy Anderson.
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.”
Stephen King himself wrote the screenplay for the independently financed film. A Good Marriage begins shooting in New York in mid-October.
