Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood to play Gerald's Game on Netflix

Gerald's Game Carla Gugino Bruce Greenwood Mike Flanagan

Last month, we reported that Netflix had their eye on HUSH/OCULUS director Mike Flanagan's GERALD'S GAME, a long-gestating Stephen King adaptation. Well, they've actually committted! That didn't take long at all. Production has already commenced in Mobile, Alabama with a full cast in place.

The lead roles will be filled by Carla Gugino (SIN CITY, Wayward Pines: pictured above) and Bruce Greenwood (STAR TREK, The People vs. O.J. Simpson: pictured below), with Henry Thomas (E.T., Flanagan's OUIJA: ORIGIN OF EVIL), Carel Struycken (MEN IN BLACK, THE ADDAMS FAMILY), Kate Siegel (HUSH), and Chiara Aurelia (Agent Carter) filling out the cast.

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.

Mike Flanagan co-wrote the script with Mike Howard. Intrepid Pictures’ Trevor Macy is producing. More on this story as it breaks!
