Star Trek into Darkness‘ Bruce Greenwood will be starring in an adaptation of a Stephen King novel, Gerald’s Game.
In Gerald’s Game, “Gerald (Greenwood) and Jessie Burlingame (Carla Gugino), head to their summer home on a warm weekday in October for a romantic interlude that involves adult games. After being handcuffed to her bedposts, Jessie tires of her husband’s games, until things take an unexpectedly tragic turn. She’s left handcuffed, trapped and alone as painful memories from her childhood bedevil her. Her only company is a hungry stray dog, the voices that populate her mind, and possibly someone watching her from the corner of the dark bedroom.”
“Gerald’s Game has been my dream project for nearly 20 years,” said Director Mike Flanagan. “As a lifelong fan of Stephen King, it is a true honor to be trusted with this amazing material.”
The cast includes one Star Trek alum, Carel Struycken, who played Mr. Homn on The Next Generation. Others in Gerald’s Game include Henry Thomas, Kate Siegel, and Chiara Aurelia.
