is reporting that Mike Flanagan, the director of the creepy films Absentia
and the upcoming Somina
, will be adapting Stephen King`s novel Gerald`s Game
for the big screen.
Gerald's Game revolves around a seemingly harmless contest between a married couple in a remote retreat. It escalates to become a harrowing fight for survival and wife Jessie must confront long-buried demons within her own mind -- and possibly lurking in the shadows of her seemingly empty house.
"In the tradition of Misery and Dolores Claiborne, Gerald's Game is one of the most intense and compelling novels I've ever read, and this has been a dream project for many years. Trevor and I are very excited to help translate that experience for an audience," said Flanagan.
Flanagan is adapting the novel with writing partner Jeff Howard (Oculus
). They have put aside one of their current projects, Diver
, so they can focus on this opportunity. Trevor Macy and his production company Intrepid Pictures will produce the film.
