Psychological horror and smoldering romance collided in Stephen King’s novel Lisey’s Story, first published in 2006. If you never got around to reading it, you’ll soon be able to watch a small screen adaptation. We’re getting word that Pablo Larrain will direct an eight-episode series for Apple. Most exciting of all, King himself will be scripting the show!
Julianne Moore will star in Lisey’s Story and J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot is producing. We don’t have a trailer or release date at this time, but we’ll keep you posted.
In the novel:
Lisey lost her husband Scott after a twenty-five-year marriage of profound and sometimes frightening intimacy. Scott was an award-winning, bestselling novelist and a very complicated man. Early in their relationship, before they married, Lisey knew there was a place Scott visited—a place that both terrified and healed him, could eat him alive or give him the ideas he needed in order to live and create. Now, two years after Scott’s death, it’s Lisey’s turn to face his demons, to go to that terrifying place known as Boo’ya Moon. What begins as a widow’s effort to sort through the vast papers of her celebrated husband becomes a nearly fatal journey into the darkness he inhabited.
