Carla Gugino And Bruce Greenwood To Star In Gerald’s Game

Bruce Greenwood and Carla Gugino are slated to headline Netflix‘s in-house adaptation of Stephen King‘s bestselling novel Gerald’s Game.

Set to be directed by Mike Flanagan, the production will be one of many the streaming service plans to make in the near future. Gugino and Greenwood’s involvement raises the profile of the project greatly, with fans who might remember them from Watchmen and Star Trek respectively being likely to check Gerald’s Game out when it starts streaming:

Henry Thomas, Carel Struycken, Kate Siegel, and Chiara Aurelia round out the cast as production gets underway in Mobile, AL. 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.

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.”

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
