We’ve been talking about the film adaptation of Stephen King’s novella A Good Marriage (from Full Dark No Stars) since 2012 and now years later we can finally start talking distribution!
According to Variety Screen Media Films have acquired the North American rights to the film, and plans to distribute it in early October — the start of the Halloween season — with a nationwide theatrical release accompanied by a day-and-date VOD platform release.
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. Directed by Peter Askin, A Good Marriage stars Joan Allen, Anthony LaPaglia, Stephen Lang, Kristen Connolly, and Theo Stockman.
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.
