Joan Allen has a new co-star in A Good Marriage as Deadline reports that Kristen Connolly has joined the cast of the adaptation of the 2010 Stephen King novella.
Currently reprising her role as congressional aide Christina Gallagher in the now-filming second season of Netflix’s political drama “House Of Cards,” Connolly will play Allen’s daughter Petra in A Good Marriage. She also starred in The Cabin In The Woods as pictured above.
“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.”
Documentarian Peter Askin is directing the feature, which will shoot in New York state. Askin is producing with his Reno Productions partner Will Battersby. Connolly, who also starred in the Joss Whedon-produced last year, is repped by Paradigm and Untitled.
