In more news from Cannes, Atlas International has added an adaptation of Stephen King’s short story “A Good Marriage” to its slate. Peter Askin will direct the psychological thriller based on a story from King’s book Full Dark, No Stars, winner of the 2010 Bram Stoker Award for Best Collection.
Will Battersby will produce A Good Marriage, which follows a woman who discovers her husband’s dark secret hiding in their garage. The New York shoot is set to get under way in late summer for a summer 2013 release. Casting is in process.
“Everyone at Atlas is very excited to be part of this project and honored by its new association with Stephen King, a true master if there ever was,“ says Philipp Menz, CEO of Atlas International.
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. (Listen to an excerpt here.)
