The indie adaptation of Stephen King’s 2010 novella A Good Marriage is now complete, and the iconic horror writer has given it his blessing.

Have seen the completed film version of A GOOD MARRIAGE. I thought it was terrific. Of course…I wrote it!” King stated on Twitter.

The movie that stars Theo Stockman, Joan Allen and Anthony LaPaglia is being directed by Peter Askin and sees Allen play a woman named Darcy, who discovers the sinister and gruesome double life that her husband and the father of their two children, played by LaPaglia, has been living.

Stockman is playing their son, a man who made a name for himself in the advertising world and is enjoying his newfound success.

King wrote the screenplay.

    Love Stephen King, but this story in no way deserves a theater adaptation over other stories of his. This story is like 30 pages long and it comes from one of his least effective books, except for the female roadside revenge story. This story is a watered down version of a disturbing Jack Ketchum short story about a mother discovering her son is actually a monster in the making. Love Stephen, Love Jack, don’t love this story. And where is harry potter as Horns? GD it.

    I actually love this story (the only story in “Full Dark, No Stars” that I don’t particularly like is the first one) and I can’t wait for the movie!
