Looks like Bruce Willis is going to try his luck in Broadway with none other than a stage adaptation of Stephen King’s MISERY, who the hell saw that coming? According to THR, Willis will make his Broadway debut opposite stage veteran Elizabeth Marvel (Other Desert Cities, House of Cards) in the play written by two-time Academy Award winner William Goldman (The Princess Bride, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid), who also wrote the screenplay for the 1990 Rob Reiner film that starred Kathy Bates in her Oscar-winning turn as Annie Wilkes.

Willis will play the housebound romance novelist Paul Sheldon, who becomes a prisoner of his unhinged "Number One Fan" Wilkes (Marvel) after she rescues him from a car accident and learns that he plans to kill off her favorite fictional character.

Will Frears has been given the nod to direct the play, which is eyeing a limited run in the fall. The theater has yet to be announced.
