Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood are to star in an adaptation of Stephen King’s 1992 novel, Gerald’s Game. Mike Flanagan (Hush, Ouija: Origin of Evil) will direct from a script he wrote with Jeff Howard.

Gerald and Jessie Burlingame 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.

Henry Thomas, Carel Struycken, Kate Siegel, and Chiara Aurelia also star in the film.

“Gerald’s Game has been my dream project for nearly 20 years,” Flanagan said. “As a lifelong fan of Stephen King, it is a true honor to be trusted with this amazing material. I am deeply grateful to my longtime partner, Trevor Macy, and to my new partners at Netflix, for making this dream project a reality. This is one of the reasons I wanted to make movies in the first place.”

Netflix will release the film globally.
