While we wait for this year’s big screen adaptations of Stephen King’s It and The Dark Tower, let’s not forget that Netflix is hard at work on an adaptation of King’s Gerald’s Game. Tentatively set to hit the streaming service sometime this year, the feature adaptation is being directed by Mike Flanagan (Hush, Ouija: Origin of Evil), and King himself just saw a rough cut!
What did he think, you ask? King tweeted over the weekend:
Saw a rough cut of Mike Flanagan’s GERALD’S GAME yesterday. Horrifying, hypnotic, terrific. It’s gonna freak you out.
In the Netflix film, based on the 1992 novel, “a woman accidentally kills her husband after being handcuffed to a bed, leaving her unable to free herself. As time passes and she realizes that rescue is an all but hopeless thought, she begins to slip into insanity, the voices in her head manifesting into visions.”
Flanagan and Jeff Howard adapted the novel.
The cast includes Carla Gugino, Henry Thomas, Bruce Greenwood, and Kate Siegel.
