Mike Flanagan to Direct Film Adaptation of Stephen King's GERALD'S GAME

According to Deadline, Mike Flanagan (OCULUS) has signed on to direct the film adaptation of Stephen King's novel GERALD'S GAME for Intrepid Pictures.

The novel "revolves around a seemingly harmless contest between a married couple in a remote retreat. It escalates to become a harrowing fight for survival, wife Jessie must confront long-buried demons within her own mind - and possibly lurking in the shadows of her seemingly empty house." Flanagan co-wrote the script with Jeff Howard.

"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," Flanagan told Deadline.

The project is set to begin production this fall.
