Watch Thomas Jane in the trailer for Stephen King’s 1922


I have always been a big fan of Thomas Jane Deep Blue Sea, The Punisher, The Mist and the other films he has stared in are all most enjoyable for different reasons…okay The Mist is really good, but probably not enjoyable in the usual sense (that ending gets me everytime). I have also been loving The Expanse and Thomas Jane has been brilliant as Miller. Honestly, if you haven’t been watching it then go find it on Netflix and watch those first two seasons. Fantastic sci-fi with great characters. Oh, and he is also going to be in The Predator movie.

Okay, let’s get back to 1922.

Jane has already starred in a couple of Stephen King adaptations. The aforementioned The Mist and also Dreamcatcher. Now he is starring in this new film based on a short story by King which featured in Full Dark, No Stars (2010).

It tells of a man’s confession of his wife’s murder. The tale is told from the perspective of Wilfred James, the story’s unreliable narrator who admits to killing his wife, Arlette, with his son in Nebraska. But after he buries her body, he finds himself terrorized by rats and, as his life begins to unravel, becomes convinced his wife is haunting him.

Jane stars as Wilfred James along with Molly Parker (Deadwood, House of Cards) as Arlette James, Dylan Schmid (Once Upon a Time, Horns) as Henry James, Kaitlyn Bernard (R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour, The Healer) as Shannon Cotterie, Brian d’Arcy James (Spotlight, Smash) as Sheriff Jones, and Neal McDonough (Captain America: The First Avenger, Legends of Tomorrow) as Harlan Cotterie.

Written and directed by Zak Hilditch (These Final Hours), 1922 hits Netflix on October 20. Another Stephen King adaptation, Gerald’s Game, will debut on September 29.
