It’s been awhile since we’ve had an update on the film adaptation of Stephen King’s novella A Good Marriage (from Full Dark No Stars), but it’s apparently now complete and, according to King, “terrific”!
King took to his new Twitter account to post the news. We’ll keep our eyes and ears open for more about the film, which was directed by Peter Askin and stars Joan Allen, Anthony LaPaglia, Stephen Lang, Kristen Connolly, and Theo Stockman.
King wrote the screenplay for the movie, which was financed by independent equity. Paradigm is handling domestic rights, while Atlas International is selling foreign rights. Askin, who directed the 2007 documentary about the Hollywood Blacklist and McCarthyism titled Trumbo, produced with his Reno Productions partner Will Battersby.
King’s story centers on a woman named Darcy (Allen) who discovers the sinister and gruesome double life that her husband of 25 years (LaPaglia) and father of their two children has been living. She must now decide how far she is willing to go to maintain the marriage. Lang plays a retired investigator from the Maine Attorney General’s office who is obsessed with solving the husband’s possible crimes.
Have seen the completed film version of A GOOD MARRIAGE. I thought it was terrific. Of course…I wrote it!
