Oculus director Mike Flanagan is set to direct a big screen adaptation of Stephen King's novel Gerald's Game. This is a great story that is sure to make for a very intense film. I really liked Oculus as well, so I think Flanagan will do a solid job bringing it to life.
The story follows a woman who accidentally kills her husband during a game of bondage type seduction. This happens in a remote retreat and she soon realizes that she is trapped with little hope of rescue, at which point she begins to let the voices inside her head take over. Then the real nightmares begin.
The director had this to say in a statement:
“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."
As a fan of King and his novels, I'm very excited to see how this film project develops. This is going to make for a great movie though!
